HAPPY BIRTHDAY "ANGEL"

HAPPY BIRTHDAY "ANGEL!" Ima Little Angel~Born February 10, 2000. Sire~Seeking Our Star. Dam~ Josh's Princess. We bought her from Burke Quarter Horses in Frankston, Texas. Stoney and Leah have done a extraordinary job with there breeding! I can't say enough about there horses and just them in general. The above picture was taken in McKinney, Texas this past year at the Cowgirls of Faith Extreme Cowgirl Challenge and conference. Me and Leah, and 8 other girls were invited to participate in the ECC at the conference. There was a qualifying round and they took the top 2 and then there was a ECC showdown Saturday afternoon. I qualified 1st and Leah 2nd and then in the showdown Leah took 1st and I 2nd. It was a close race and the extraordinary thing about it was, our horses are related! She is riding "Sunny Man" who is Angels' half brother. Stoney was elated he had not 1 but 2 horses in the finals!! I felt honored to have such a horse and have Stoney there to see his horses working. What a day it was! Anyone who is a regular knows how I feel about her! We have that special bond, I trust her and respect her! She takes care of me and my little cowgirl, that is priceless! I have done all sorts of events on her~roping, rodeos, day worked, sortings, play days, post colors, Extreme races, barrels and Savannah rides her in her rodeos. I don't think there is anything I can't do on her! I thank God everyday for such a horse and having a hubby that loves me enough to buy such a extraordinary horse! Love ya girl, too many more years and times together!

LOVE the pink. My hubby and two boys all have the pink Wrangler, Tough Enough to Wear Pink shirts, and they always get comments when they all wear them at once. They love it.

I have a picture of me, Angel, Leah and Star. (Angel's dad) from our Women's Ranch Rodeo. She had someone take our picture and then gave one to me! I don't have a scanner, will try and get it on here. They have since had to retire her mother~due to age.

My hat is actually a dark chocolate with pink trim! I love it! Mike's Hatters in Longview made it! I always get complaints on it! He also did my palm leaf with pink trim! Chocolate and pink are my colors!

Happy Bday to Angel! I love good mares.......there's just something about them.
