I met Bob when I was 14. He had a few horses there that I became attached to (Panic especially!). And my love for horses grew! When my mom got me my first horse when I was 14, Bob let us keep him at the farm. It was like what you see in movies- riding through herds of livestock on horse back through the “land”. Anyways- my love of horses- and my now career, started there- right at Bob's farm. And I appreciate him and Sue very much for that!
