Photo Contest - Pet Faces

This is Palo Gold Gun, my Dad's Palomino. He was born in 1983 in Preston, GA to champion parents, One Gun Jr. (sire) and Palo Gold Rush (dam) and went to live with my Dad in August of 2000. He is an absolutely beautiful horse and is truly a part of our huge family. This last August my husband and I visited Amarillo, TX and stopped in at the American Quarterhorse Association. There we requested his records and got his history going back eight generations and brought this information back to my Dad. My Dad knew that he had champion in him but did not have all the history. Palo Gold Gun placed in reining for a couple of years until he got hurt and had to be retired. He lives very happily at my Dad's and shares stables with other ponies. He is a very happy old guy.
