Depends on whether you want to call it a "walk of shame" or a "got laid parade" :D


...I felt like such a voyeur viewing those pics. :lol:

Oh yes, Terlingua, who may be his most famous daughter, also lived a long life...to age 32. Barbara just posted a picture of her as a yearling that I don't remember seeing before. (She and Curtis' Border Run are full siblings. I wonder if Navajo Pass is still alive (she'd be 29); maybe Patricia McQueen will do a story on her.

Here's a super-cool historic pic by John C. Wyatt. TERLINGUA (Secretariat-Crimson Saint) as a @keenelandsales yearling, 1977. She sold for $275K. Her dam was a brilliant GSW and great producer, and Terlingua was a brilliant MGSW, best known as the dam of (drum roll) Storm Cat.

Oh for the chance to go through Barbara Livingston's collection. What gems are there waiting to be rediscovered...or maybe discovered for the first time publicly.

Is anyone going to comment on how young that handler in the photo looks? :lol:

I hadn't noticed the handler until you mentioned it. I couldn't stop looking at Terlingua's QH-sized hindquarters. On a yearling. :shock:
She was a beautiful filly, and no surprise that she became a tremendous sprinter.

As soon as I saw the photo, I assumed she must have been a pretty docile filly, if a kid was allowed to parade her. :lol:

Thanks, Flanders. I didn't have time yesterday to look it up.

The young man holding Terlingua's shank has been identified as Olin Gentry. I just love old photos like this!

Looks like he was working for his father's consignment

Off topic, but talk about a family legacy of selling nice horses.
