JR is a Missouri Fox Trotter combining Yankee and Sensation bloodlines. He has been imprinted at birth and LOVES people. His color is strawberry roan sabino dun. You can see the strawberry roan. Sabino means he has white spots here and there which you can't see in his winter hair. Dun means he has a stripe down his back. His stripe includes about 2" of white right at his withers and then the strip is red. It goes down his back and to the end of his tail. He and I are both strawberry roans..WE MATCH! We will be quite a combination in about 3 years!
It's been 3 years now and I am riding JR and loving everything about him. He's grown quite tall. He's right at 16 hands..bigger than his mother or father! This is 2003 and he's four years old. He seems to have grown every day since he came to Hidden Paradise! He is very athletic. He still loves people and likes to take me out for a smooth spin!
JR is almost at one year old in this picture. Terry scratches JR on one of his favorite places. Picture taken June 2000.

Ariel is in the foreground. She is now watching over us in her own special urn. Sadie is #2 dog and motivates Ariel to run and play. Sadie will be three years old this year and we are certainly glad she has lots of room to run and expend all her energy. Ariel swims and fetches sticks. Sadie watches on the shore and takes the stick away when Ariel brings it to shore.
