(Tia's Desert Storm)
These are my favorite photos of my (most beautiful) horse (on
the planet), Stormy (Washington-bred Tias Desert Storm), who raced at
Emerald Downs 1996-98 for Alana Goff and in 1999 for Doris Crozier and Chris
Stenslie. He won $45,880 in his career. I got him from Chris at the end of 1999
and retired him from racing. Since then he has actually earned a little of his
keep in California as a pack string leader for the US Forest Service and as a
wranglers horse on a big dude ranch. Now he hangs around with endurance
horses in Idaho, eats (a lot) and spends time in and out of Weight Watchers
programs. At age 17, he gets ridden occasionally on trail rides when he is
sound and not suffering from navicular.
