Little Willie and Maysa
5 by 7 Watercolor
Last year Ryan entered his first EMM. Honestly, we probably got into it for all the wrong reasons...for the competition, for a challenge, and to get our name out to a different crowd. We had no clue that we would fall head-over-heels for mustangs and the circle of people involved with them. Our first mustang was Little Willie, EMM Colorado, last year. Little Willie was TINY, and really quite homely (until you got to know him!)!
Ryan is 6'6 and towered over this little horse! But he just may have had the BIGGEST heart of any horse we've come across. Ryan and Willie ended up in the Finals in Colorado...afterwards, (and keep in mind that Ryan has accomplished much in the rodeo and ranch horse comp. world) said that "THIS was the BIGGEST and most IMPORTANT thing he has done in his equine career...". We ALL cried when we said goodbye to Willie, but take a look where he was adopted to, http://www.thehideout.com/movie.htm

From day 1 he had such an interest and curiousity for our kids.
