HAPPY BIRTHDAY "WILLIS"

HAPPY BIRTHDAY "WILLIS!!"
"Willis" turns 4 years old today. Born Decked Out Bueno on March 14, 2005. Sire~Seeking Our Star, Dam~Cragers Poco Mary. On the top side he has Dude Wimp Bar Deck, Miss Nifty Zipper, Dark Moon Chic, King Wimp Wickee, Go Zipper, Miss Nifty Bars. On the bottom side he has HQH Poco Joe, Poco Marabel, Poco Papacita, Divides Cinder Ann, Poco Bueno 2 and Miss Marabel. Him and "Angel" are half brother and sister~same Sire different Dams. We bought him from Stoney and Leah Burke of Burke Quarter Horses in Frankston, Texas. He is currently in training to become a heading horse, but I want to make him a all around horse as well. So he gets hauled everywhere to every kind of event. Exposure is so good on a young horse. He has been a pleasure to ride and I'm learning alot about training colts. I have high hopes for this horse and think in a couple of years we will be a force to be reckoned with!
March Play Day first time jumping~did a great job and didn't knock it over! Woo Hoo!

Every time after I ride he will roll!

Self portrait! He still has such a baby face!

Tracking and roping practice!
Waiting his turn at the March Play Day

Happy birthday to your Willis! He sure has the papers to make an all-round horse, a little speed, a little cow and a good dose of foundation breeding. He looks like a kind horse too.

He is such sweet horse! Remember how kind he was with Jeremiah? I still need to post that video...I'll let you know when I do. It cracks me up...he must've recognized that they were both "babies". lol

He is such a good looking guy. I love his breeding too. He looks like he still has a lot of room to fill out, so really aught to be a big, soggy boy in a couple of years.;)
