I am proud to say the “County” is a wonderful member of our family. I have not had a lot of time to ride him lately – been busy on the farm – but he goes out in the pasture everyday after breakfast. He is a very sweet fellow and I enjoy spending time with him.
I suppose he is getting fat but he enjoys his life and I will always take very good care of him. I will say this about him, he loves to find a muddy spot to roll and has looked rather funny at times doing this and turning his entire body brown. I never have a camera handy at the time. He acts like a kid playing in a mud puddle and loving every minute of it.
Wanted to send you a picture of “County’s” friend. She is a red dun. I believe he loves redheads as well as brunettes. My AQHA buckskin mare Dixie had become his pasture buddy and when she left a couple of weeks age for breeding he had a fit. Then this redhead showed up, HS Dixie Darling. At first he would pay her no attention but in a few days he was in love.
I forgot “County’s” short friend. The first time we put Daisy in the pasture next to him. He looked at her as if
to say, “Is this a Horse or what?” Actually she is a very nice pony, which I was surprised to learn. We gave her a home but we really just lead kids on her. She would make a nice pony for a small child to ride but we do not have any short people with those qualities.
“County” has all women in his retirement life and I think he enjoys it.
Cobb County was a Prospect Horse FOR SALE until August 2007 when Kelly Fortner purchased him. “County” has enjoyed a happy year with Kelly making many new friends at home in the North Georgia Mountains. Click here to read their past success stories and here to see Cobb County’s pedigree.
