"The Okie Drifter" is a 24 year-old Appaloosa gelding and is my best friend.
We have been together for 22 and a half years but it seems like just yesterday when
I first laid my eyes on the most beautiful and soulful big brown eyes I had ever
seen! It was love at first sight. Heck, he could have had 3 legs but I wouldn't
have cared, he was my partner and I knew that in my heart. When I opened his stall
door to get a better look at this youngster who had captured my heart, he was breathtaking!
Tall, long-legged, white all over his rump and as gangly as any coming 2yo. And
full of mischief?!?! Oh MY! What a stinker! But you know what....he wouldn't be
Drifter if he was any other way. He is one heck of a show horse and hold on to yourselves....he
is a Saddleseat horse! Yes he is......Appaloosa World Championship Top 10 in 1993,
we placed 6th overall! How about that for Appaloosa versatility....cattle, jumping,
western pleasure, halter, reining, team penning and Saddleseat! WOW, he really is
