    Can't wait for you to get your cams up shadowpaints, I watched them last year, and will do so again.

    I also have a question for you. Do you know much about mini horse bloodlines? I've got 2 registered mares and have no clue as to who is who as I have only dealt with Paint and Quarter horses before.
