ahh arlene thats because your a historian. you state facts. we state passion. but i as an enthusiast love both versions. she was above and beyond what i call a true park horse!
Ironically I DO have plenty of passion but that shows more in person than when I post here I guess.
And sometimes I have to be a gadfly and remind people of the facts of some past events. Lots of new people in the breed may not remember the great ones (or the ones thought great at the time because of hype who really weren't so great).
My favorite purebred park horse of all time was Reign On at Scottsdale in 1986. Others include Zodiac Matador, Orans Adagio, and AA Apollo Bey. Countess Vanessa was a one of a kind, no other horse moved like her, but I had a feeling she wouldn't produce a foal in her own image, and sadly I was right.
