Horse lovers Fandango will steal your heart

Horse lovers Fandango will steal your heart
By Barbara Steinberg

At Rush Ranch Open Space, Access Adventure is busy breeding the most beautiful horses I have ever seen. I am not a horse expert...but you don't have to be an expert to know that this 6-month-old colt, Fandango, is really something special. Michael Muir (great-grandson of John) is the magic behind this darling. But the real stars were his parents - a Royal Night Friesian and Spotted Leopard Appaloosa. Until a year ago, I had never heard of either. But now I am a frequent visitor to Rush Ranch and met Fandango when he was just days old.

Newly weaned, he's renewed his interest in two-footed friends. But even though he's a growing boy...he's still very much like a baby. And during our visit, couldn't help but take a little nap. Check out the slide show.

Rush Ranch is an easy drive from Sacramento, With or without Fandango, it's a very special place and great hikes along Suisun Marsh. Come out next weekend for "Celebrate Adventure" and learn more about Access Adventure, their programs, and, of course, the horses.

Barbara has posted a nice slideshow of Fandango photos,too.
