Thanks for visiting
Shown here for reference only, she is not for sale.
Honey Bar has previously mostly been shown in open shows and she has always done very well. She has won several Hi Point Buckles. (She was shown in two APHA paint shows in breeding stock classes. She did get lots of complements from the judges particularly in Trail Class but unforunately, as there is no competition in breedstock classes she recieved no points.)
Honey Bar was Born in March of 1986 on the Marx Ranch. A little Buckskin Solid Paint Filly. I always wanted a Buckskin...so six months later she was mine. Yep...I have had her since she was 6 months old and come this March she would have been 29. My Children learned to ride on her. She was a 4-H horse and their mount for the Mesquite Youth Rodeo Association. They rode her up and down the road too.
Later when the kids were no longer interested in riding, she bacame my first show horse. We also rode for hours up and down the road everyday, and she could be ridden bridle-less. I had never been to a show before and neither had she but she won first place in the trail class at our very first show ever. Needless to say she got me hooked on showing. She excelled in trail class competition and recieved many complements from the judges. She earned several Year End High Point Buckles as well.
For the past 4 summers she has been teaching my grandchildren to ride and they enjoyed grooming her. They could even go in her pen, get her sidepassed up to the fence and just climb on her without a saddle or bridle. She was quiet and very good with the kids. They could get her to give them a hug by reaching their arms up towards her head and ask for a hug and she would lower her head and put it in their arms....
She was still plump and healthy and did not seam to suffer before she left us...it was just evidently her time to go.
R.I.P. HONEY BAR. I'm sure going to miss that little girl. :(
