This was taken when I was 2 years old, shortly after I arrived at the Rockin' "D". Mary and
Barb found me at an auction held during the Scottsdale Horse Show, but they brought me home before I went to
auction... and I am so happy they made that decision!
Here I am as an elegant young lady, if I do say so myself...at 7 years!
Hy Komotion (Kalamity) 3/29/88 ~ 6/14/03
Ta-da!! Introducing my best buddy, Hy Komotion, better known as Kalamity. We became
best friends when I came to live at the Rockin' "D" when I was two years old. She was always getting into trouble, as
you can guess by her nickname. Mary, of Rockin' "D" Ranch, bred and raised her.
The grey is King Kaladdinn, Kalamity's youngest; this was taken when he was about 9 months
old. He was rather a brat, but then most little boys are, but he is improving as he matures. His tubby friend is a "mini",
named Rowdy. They played together until they played too roughly and Mary thought they would hurt each other. Now Rowdy
has moved and is living with his family.
Here is Kaladdinn all grown up.
Sarah rides him in Western classes, and sometimes in Hunter classes, too.
Sometimes Mary S. rides him in Hunter classes. Mary, Sari's owner, has given Kaladdinn a lot of dressage
This was taken in July, 2004 when Virginia was visiting Mary. Virginia says she and Mary missed the better picture... I
had been on my knees with my nose out under the fence trying to eat the grass. I discovered it was too difficult eating grass
with the side of my mouth, so I decided to get back up. That is when Mary snapped this picture!
Boys will be boys... finally Kaladdinn has a friend his own size
to play with. Here are Sari and Kal playfighting on a cool spring day, and then looking like angels... as if they hadn't been
doing anything at all!
|Sari & Kaladdinn - such fierce warriors!
|... or they two angels in disguise?
|What a beautiful day!
This is Meagan and Kaladdinn and Marsha and Kandi (in the rear)
at a competitive trail riding clinic this past winter. I sure wish Virginia and I could have gone with them because they all
enjoyed themselves. It was a first experience for Kandi to be ridden in the hills as she is usually ridden around home
where it is very flat, but it was a new locale for Kaladdinn. Kal has never done a competitive trail ride, but he and Meagan
spend lots of time in the mountains!
