Albie was a gift to HorsePower from Matt & Melisa McGraw. Albie originally came from North Dakota when he was just 3 years old. His full name is Albie A Showtime Boy, and he lives up to his name. He loves attention from two legged and four legged friends, including dogs and cats. He enjoys a good ear rub and won’t complain if you spend a little time rubbing his neck. He has learned a couple of tricks over the years – pushing a gate open and then coming along side the gate to shut it, taking a bow for a small treat, and most helpful, he comes running when he is called.
My full name is “Chiefs Rebel Cheyenne”. I am the only horse in the HorsePower Herd with blue eyes. I am one of the largest horses but an very patient, gentle and love learning new things. I was born and raised right here in Missouri.
I’m one of the shyest in the herd even though I have ridden in parades and worked around livestock. HorsePower is great for helping rebuild my confidence, but I still prefer a soft touch and gentle, quiet movements. I’m one of the tallest in the herd and I’m also the reddest – kind of like the color of copper penny. Some horse people would call my coloring sorrel and some would say chestnut. I have white on my right, hind leg above my hoof and a few white hairs on my head. Maybe you can rub me there when I meet you.
I am considered a “Buckskin” which means I am tan with dark mane and tail. I am a Quarter Horse and I used to like to run really fast – in fact I even got to carry a barrel racer for 3 years. I’ve participated in Fun Shows with my previous family and have even been a first lesson horse for a 4 year old girl!
Did you know that Paso Fino means “Fine Walker”? And that’s exactly how I present myself, full of confidence while being very smooth. I am the perfect size for HorsePower Students – not too big and not too small. I like to be the center of attention with humans and with the herd. When people first meet me they often use the word “Sassy”.
I am the lightest colored horse in the HorsePower herd and like to consider my mane and tail “silver”. I am a Missouri Fox Trotter – which means all my ancestors started out in the Ozark Mountains right here in Missouri. I have ridden lots of trails in Missouri and Kansas and I love camping. I really enjoy sweet talks from my human friends whispered in my ear – I’m also a great listener. I’m named after the Texas A&M mascot – but my name also is a musical tune used to wake up soldiers in the mornings.
