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.
