Meeting Painting Freedom today. A magnificent thoroughbred stallion - I even have a video

A friend of mine bought him from a person in Montana, and he arrived about 25 min from my house having traversed to the East Coast in order to bring his unusual colors and special beauty to horses here.
I know nothing about horses but my friend does, she single handedly runs a huge stable on 56 acres and I got to be the first visitor to see him.
He was so happy to get to play and roll around that I was unable to get any really good shots because of all the dust he raised. What a beauty he is.

Iíll show you the road leading to the stable, and then the view from the front door, and then you meet him.

















Now meet Lola, the 6 week old Jack Russell Terrier who lives there as well



And here is the video, it was taken in his old home in Montana

1. Wow, my dear Mira!

What a magnificent horse! I love the puppy too...

How lucky for you to see this beautiful intelligent animal and in his surroundings. I esp. like the photo of him rolling in the dust!

2. I KNOW that horse, in a manner of speaking

By coincidence, about a month ago, happened to be catching some videos of paint horses, both overo and tobiano colors, and saw the above video, loved the name.
What a co-incidence.

This is not a cheap horse.

3. No, not a cheap horse.

My friend and I talked a lot about the expense and getting the loan and the stud fees that will bring back the cost of purchase. She says the interest is huge and the decision was the right one.
She kind of leaned on my for support, which is why I got to see it first, and why I have been told the first little one will somehow have my name incorporated.
Life can be so good.

Isn't it absolutely glorious in motion?
