We too mourn, with the rest of the horse world, the passing of Smart Little Lena. www.smart-little-lena.info/ I feel like we have a little piece of him here in the Kid (Smart Little Lena is his great grand sire on both the top and bottom side of his pedigree). He even looks, to me, a lot like the great old stallion but in gelding form of course. Makes me wonder if we should really be selling him.
We have always loved the Three Bars bred horses as we had the priveledge of owning a grandson of his many years ago. I loved that old stud. Here is Les and I on Christmas day the year I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. (Crazy how people used to roach or shave off horses manes, here, his is just growing back). How an old thoroughbred could throw such cowiness in his get is amazing.
