So Mikael asked for some shots of Maddy's dad, Smoken Now.
His nickname is "Pokey." He really is a stunning boy. You would never know he is a stallion, he is so checked in and well-behaved. He is down the road from the Rockin Maddy Ranch, getting in some training. Ray is working cows with him and just putting some miles on him to get him back in shape. He is listed on Dreamhorse for a mere $65,000 if any of my horse friends are looking for a nice stud that always throws color. When my boyfriend Derek first saw a photo of him, he said "Wow, he is like a horse super-hero!" He loves attention and Laura encourages Ray to give him kisses, but so far the cowboy is sticking to his guns and just gives him scratches. He says he doesn't want to spoil him, but Laura, his owner, and I suspect he gives him hugs and kisses when no one is watching. They are quite a pair. It really was a treat to watch him and Ray work together, a solid foundation Quarter Horse with an eternal cowboy. "Pokey" babies are all over the ranch and they are all beautiful. Nice strong legs and beautiful heads. Of course I am partial:-)
Not too hot to ride?
