Ironman joined the world on May 1 at about 5 a.m. and had his first formal photo shoot at 3 p.m. He was still a bit unsteady on his legs and didn’t always know quite where they should be. But he figured out quickly where to find his meals and the value of an afternoon nap. Ironman, his dam Cirena (and sire Copperman) are owned by Denice and Roy Perry.
Not many horses have the talent for a great sliding stop, but it’s one of the traits that sets the Quarter Horse apart from other breeds. For the A-Z Archive Challenge letter “Q” it seemed appropriate to highlight one of those special moments that cowboys and cow horses share, when the ideal sliding stop comes together with a confident, balanced effort and lots of flying dirt. So much fun!
