First there was the filly, then there was Colt.

Guess who we met while we were at a big horse show at HITS on the Hudson in Saugerties, NY last weekend?
Tim got bored when I put him to work sewing pillows and took off on his bike with his camera. He met a nice guy hanging out with his cute 9 month old boy, Colt. Cute name, right? When he told me who the guy was, Olympic rider Todd Minikus, I told him to get back on that bike and go do some pictures! He and his beautiful wife, Amanda, were nice enough to pose on my quilt with baby Colt. I absolutely love these pictures. We gave Colt his first mount! Black and white Sis Boom Casey Scroll Horse on a stick- he really responded to the black and white one.
What a lovely young family. Good luck at the Hampton Classic next week, Todd!
Starstruck? Who, me?

Awwww, what a cute baby and I love the name! The quilt is yummy! I bet little Colt will love his stick horse!

BTW, I find it so amusing that one part of my life, horses and showing and riding and all that, collides with the other part of my life...sewing and creating. Somehow you have managed to marry the two. Amazing!
