This is Masterpiece of '79. He is the first horse we bought when he was 20 months old from some friends we met through 4-H. Stephanie and Jennifer happened to be there when he was born, not knowing that we would later buy him. He became Jenny's horse and she used him in 4-H and Pony Club. When he was just three years old, Jenny rode him from Lawton Rd. in Hamlin, to our house on Holley St. in Brockport (of course I was there too, on Shadow). I could not have asked for a more level headed horse...Jenny was not even 10 years old. He is now 29 and very arthritic in his front right knee...still playful. We have not ridden him for a couple of years, but he is very much a part of the family.
