Delightful and so charming Milt! My cousin rides quarter horses and trains them for dressage! Roy Rogers and Dale Evens, Trigger and Buttermilk, Nellie Bell and Sons of the West, are favorite childhood memories! Thanks for the pony ride into memories. Congratulations!

Ah, such a cute reply, Rico. I think everyone loved Trigger. I saw him after he was stuffed! (chuckling)
