Going through some old photos and came across this article today. I loved Tardee Impressive. In fact, the mare that is the foundation of my program is by him---Miss Bunny Tardee. I bred to him when he was at Bill Morris' in Texas, and also Bob Lee and I bred to him when he was in California and at Will Woods in Texas when the government stood him. Back then, there was no shipped semen, you had to take your mare to the stallion.

Rita Bangs asked if I had a picture of Bunny Nightshade, the dam of Miss Bunny Tardee. I do have one that Clark Danielson took of her. She was a big mare---stood 15.3 and was sired by Sonnys Nighshade by Sonny Dee Bar. Her dam was Bunny Bee Two by Bouncy Mac out of Bunny Band by Bee Play and out of a daughter of Panzarita. Miss Bunny Tardee was the result of the Danielsons breeding Bunny Nightshade to Tardee Impressive when she was a two year old. Miss Bunny Tardee was 15.3 and the first foal out of the mare.

Still looking through some old pictures and found this one of Miss Bunny Tardee when she was 18 years old. She was the background of my program and I still have 3 of her offspring----Fred (Classically) Rebecca (You Bet Im Cool) and Bonnie (CJ Miss Cool Tardee) Miss Bunny Tardee was by Tardee Impressive out of Bunny NIghtshade by Sonnys NIghtshade.

This is one of my “all time” favorite” pictures. It was taken years ago and was of a black filly by Impressivist owned by Bob Baumann. Barbara and Dick Waltenberry took the picture and Dick just happened to capture it at the right time. As many of you know, Dick now specializes in photographing reining events and perhaps this was the photo that inspired him to do it. Dick and Barbara live not far from me but I don’t see them that much anymore. It is funny how things have changed. They are still on the road a lot videoing and photographing horse events and I imagine Dick is still making his “home brew” beer. I have now evolved into the digital age and have a digital camera so I am able to take my own pictures. Those were good times and I miss them. The Waltenberrys took pictures of all of my horses back then and sometimes we would go out to eat at the White House Inn and Dick would always enjoy an old fashioned. I need to contact them and do that again.

Heat wave in Wisconsin today----at noon the temperature reached a balmy 6 below zero with the wind chill! Leah Gloudemans came and we were able to get the horses outside for a couple of hours. Rebecca (You Bet Im Cool) and the rest of the horses really enjoyed it and honestly, Leah and I thought it was nice. In fact, I think I will have Mark Williams send some suntan lotion from California. Pearl is carrying Rebecca's embryo and it due the end of this month.

As we begin a new year, I want to reflect back on 2017. It was a year filled with happiness and sadness for so many of us. We had the joys of welcoming new children and animals into our lives and also the sorrow of losing loved ones. Some of us were successful with our endeavors and others failed. As I get older, I am happy that I have evolved out of the “dark ages” and learned how to “connect” with so many of you on Facebook. Who knows what 2018 will bring but as we enter it, we can only hope that everything will be great and that we and our families and friends will stay healthy. Thank you for being my friends-----I truly appreciate all of you.
