Re: [RC] Rushceek horses - rides2far

This conversation about Rushcreek horses is very timely because I   
bought a > Rushcreek horse yesterday. Her name is Rushcreek Maggie and
number on her > hip is 548 and she is very nice.    Julie Suhr

Back in the late 80's/ early 90's it was such a big deal when somebody
went and got a Rushcreek horse...then the name seemed to just disappear
off the map for years. Now, it seems like there's a big upswing! I've
known of 5 people of my friends who have bought from them *this year*.
Did something cause the big upswing?

I hauled Molly Herlong's new Rushcreek horse to the Million Pines ride
this spring. He's TALL, very rugged, was thin like he'd just been pulled
off the range, but had so much sense. He'd been one of their ranch horses
and yes John, he *did* ground tie.  Problem was Molly had been letting
him out in her yard on a rope to graze and he wouldn't move. :-) She
loves that horse so much it scares her dad. He doesn't know what she'll
do if something happens to it. Right after she brought him home she took
him on a long trail ride back in the hills and rode him home along a road
with nothing but a halter.

I agree about the bad photography though. I'm pretty good at making a
horse look as good or as bad as I want it to look with a camera. Whoever
took these photos looks like they're trying to get the price down.>g<
