In what is perhaps my final (for now?) segment of baby horse nostalgia, I leave you with this tale (that I may or may not have told you before). Periodically  The "World Famous" Lipizzaner Stallions come to the area. If you ever get the chance to see them you should take advantage of it. They're pretty spectacular. And if you don't know, they also use Andalusian stallions in their show.
After one such performance in our area years ago, my mother read a letter to the editor in our local paper. In the letter, the gentleman who wrote it was telling people that we now had an Andalusian breeding stable right here in our county!
After she told me about that letter, I "cold-called" the owners of the stable to see if I could come out and see their horses...
...and that began my journey to being owned by Solana :D
The final note of the story you should know: that letter to the editor was written by the gentleman who had a part interest in Nottea, Solana's dam....the very same gentleman who owns Mo and who owns the barn where Solana now lives so happily!

Seeing the Lipizzaner Stallions needs to go on my Bucket List.

Stunning horses. Always wanted to see them.

I truly believe things happen for a reason. Just think of the chain of events that led you to Sonata.
