I love the Appaloosa in Orren's above painting because it depicts one of my favorite Appaloosa coat colors and patterns, and, reminds me a little of photos of My Boy when he was a yearling. He was a shiny copper sorrel with a blanket and spots. Now, he roans out, especially in the summer. One of the joys of owning an Appaloosa is watching their color change as they age.
Here is a more detailed obituary from the A.Q.H.A, as well as another link from Western Horseman magazine. I always thought he looked like such a friendly cowboy, too.
We went to the trail challenge today. I will have some photos and insight to share when I get back into town and at my own computer next week!
