Addia, Fanchette and Gipsey to the stallion you

nine colts by year, and I think with 8, 7, or
six. Quality is allways better than quantity.
The time will come soon when we will breed
no more Fanchette. What do you think of her?

In fact, I don't want to keep many horses,
I don't like poor or middle ones. I want
only the best -- if I can have it.

attend my business, and the education of my
children. Physically, thanks God, they are all
