Mandy Haskin was such a lucky kid getting to meet some of the most legendary horses ever. A couple of months ago, I wrote about our visit to the Kentucky Horse Park under another topic. I believe we were there in 1994 and we got to see John Henry and Forego. Bold Forbes and Rambling Willy (famous in harness) was there too. What I wrote about John Henry and Forego was that even though they were in their 20's, they looked great. Their coats were so shiny, they just glistened. I had also said it was hard to tell them apart as they looked so similar, they looked like twins. Enjoy viewing the following photos of some of the greats and you'll see what I was talking about with John Henry and Forego. What a thrill it was seeing them both and what an enjoyable visit it was to the KHP.

OMgosh, it was wonderful to see unposed, informal photos of these Greats.  I was especially happy to see ND and Mr.P!

What a lucky kid, indeed!  Smiley
