Clint and Al
The picture you see on my blog is my horse, Al. Al became a part of my life in 1999, just 2 weeks after we moved into our new home in Fishtail. Al was a breeding stallion, had never been ridden, was 6 years old, and my wife explained his personality as one that wanted attention, not a mare in heat. Artist Julie Jeppsen was commissioned to paint this picture of Al and I shortly after he passed away. There will be updates of Al Dude, as he was known by my grandchildren, as we share our experiences together on this site. Hope you enjoy Al Dude and the stories as much as I did having him part of my life.
