All About Alfie

Poor Alfie, he's probably got a complex by now, but I must say that he's finally come into his own this year. Possibly he's a late bloomer at the ripe old age of 13, thoroughly middle age in a horse, but in his prime no doubt. He's my main man now that Sega has retired.  Maybe he craves all that attention he never received while Sega stole his spotlight.  We're coming into the home stretch this season, two more shows to go and the big one is next weekend, filling us with anticipation hoping to end this partial horse show season on a high note after so many months of watching from the sidelines.

The photos below were scanned from photos I purchased locally.  Here he is is showing off his raw talent at two local shows and that "look" that would make even Lauren Bacall jealous. We'll report from our finale in a few weeks.  Hoping for primary colors!  As a t-shirt once read with Richard Nixon's photo on it, we're "tanned, rested and ready."



Happy Wednesday!

  3. I love your blog and your pictures. I'm in Texas now after being in Virginia for 13 years so I like to come over here to ease the pain of home-sickness (although I'm deeply in love with Texas).

  4. Wow he's really nice... nice knees, lovely bone and that neck/shoulder.... SWOON.
    So 'what' is he?
    My own had some very definite growth and maturation points... and his teens was definitely one of them.
    Love a horse in their teens.... wise but still willing and able.
