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".)

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.
