Flying W Farms Prince Bonhoeffer
Greetings! Flying W Farms!
As for our 3 intro tests...he had two scores
at 66% as well as a 69% for reserve champion high point of the day (only
.05 difference from champion)! He was an absolute STAR and I couldn't
have been happier. My goal for the weekend was to stay in the arena and
complete the tests but I guess I should have set my sights a bit higher.
I can't tell you how proud I am to own this horse and tell EVERYONE about
I may do a few more shows this fall though I am content to just trail ride or ride on the beach. Next year we will begin our show career in earnest. Until then I am happy to just enjoy my wonderful horse. Allison

I Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how his
highness is doing; He is 21 months old in these photos. He is such a
beautiful boy and he is breathtaking to watch.
We have had a lot of snow this winter which hasn't seemed to
bother him any when it comes to running around.
The owners of the barn invite their friends to come over and watch
him play just to see his beautiful movement. His hock action is just
I have not been able to take him off the farm for our usual walks as
roads have been terrible but before the snow fell we were walking about 3
miles together. He has already seen so many "scary" things and has
brave about everything. He has seen bikes, skiers, snow plows, joggers, trucks towing
lawn equipment and still he does nothing but look. He has a GREAT BRAIN and I just

It seems hard to believe that I have owned his royal highness for a year now. He is the sweetest, smartest horse I have ever owned! I just bought a trailer and have been taking him EVERYWHERE to show him off. We are working on self-loading and he is getting there slowly but surely (he comes off by himself). Everyone who meets him loves him (I mean who wouldn't).
Last weekend I took him to the barn where we will learn to ground drive, long-line and eventually learn to drive. There is a lot going on at this barn with minis driving and people in the indoor driving and ground driving. He was SUPERB! He didn't bat an eye at anything. I was soooo proud of him.
Bonhoeffer stands about 16+ hands (at his withers) and is starting to fill out everywhere. He has had a saddle on (girthed) and could have cared less. I will probably back him next spring and begin work in earnest the following spring as he is going to be so big!
