Patches the Horse

Quite a long time ago, my online friend Lori (Lahdee) sent me the link to a video of "Patches the Horse".   I saved it to my computer and have shared it with many people.  For those of you who have never met Patches, click HERE.

Cliff said he happened to see a segment on television recently of Patches water skiing; I can't seem to google that one up on the Internet.

Patches died in September of 2006 at the age of twenty-four, as I learned at THIS WEBSITE.  I also learned there that he left a son to follow in his footsteps.

I'd love to know what breed Patches was.

He was nothing short of amazing.

added later:  I found the water skiing video!  Click HERE.  (Notice they mistakenly call Patches "she".)

Oh, that was really something!  Now I'm going to be late for work. LOL  Glad you posted them.  That was an amazing horse.

I have seen the first one but not the second one. Didn't realize he had died. Thanks for sharing. Helen

I'm impressed I can't even waterski. That's something now. Have a great day.
Take care, Chrissie

Patches was an amazing horse, I have the video of her riding in a car on my Furr Baby site, on the side bar.
