July 12, 2007 - All in the family.
to Cheryl Sharp of Ball Ground, Georgia for
recogizing a diamond in the rough. Acanthium is a gorgeous
horse. He is the son of Thistle and the full brother of Josh
and the half brother of Polictial Pull and Most
Always a Lady.
Political Pull reunites at Bits & Bytes
Farm with his full sister - Most Always a Lady. They are the half
brother and sister to Acanthium. They all share the same dam -
Thistle. August 2006
Cheryl has the experience, time and patience to work with a
young horse and bring him along slowly. We expect great things
from this pair.
Acanthium aka "Andy" was
one of our 25 Special Horses back
in November 2005. (Click here and
here read the two stories
of our 25
Special Horses.) He was an unregistered
three year-old colt when we found homes for most of the horses.
His breeder registered him and sent "Andy" off
to be broke for racing. While he was learning to be a race horse
it became apparent that racing was not a career in which he would
excel. Andy was just too laid back and could not understand why
he should run. He displayed a beautiful balanced trot and his trainer
suggested that he might make a better show horse or dressage horse.
We were asked to find him a home and we did. Click here to
