Cory’s Visitors – 10/16/14

October 18, 2014

Last August during the Celebration of Wild Horses Through Art and Music; an exhibit and fundraiser for The Cloud Foundation (such a great time/turnout), I mentioned to Ginger Kathrens that if she was ever in our area, she should feel free to come by and meet El Corazon – “Cory.” Last Thursday, she and fellow TCF board member Ann Evans took me up on that invite and came by to meet my boy. (Ginger never had the opportunity to meet El Mariachi, but she knew of him and his story).

Cory, Ginger and Ann.

Gotta check out those feet!

Cory is such a sweet boy and he behaved beautifully for his guests.

My Foxtrotter Gold just has to be in the middle of things. He's very interested in folks and all the goings on.

    Pam,
    Is Cory a Mustang? Didn’t see a freeze brand.

  2. pnickoles Says:

    Yes Donna. Cory is a Mustang. Both parents were wild born. El Mariachi was Cory’s sire. https://nickolesphotography.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/el-mariachis-gift/

    Oh my gosh! I thought for a moment I was looking at El Mariachi! I forgot about his son and your finding him. He is beautiful and so glad he is ‘home’.

  4. Robyn Persichitte Gipp Says:

    Beautiful!.. love Cory….has he been trained to ride?..

  5. maxandconnie Says:

    What a blessing your boy is to you and the people’s hearts he will touch in his lifetime. Thank you for sharing that. He is truly Beautiful like his papa. I’m not going to lie and say I’m not completely envious of those gals getting to meet him. I will always have El Mariachi’s picture on my refrigerator. I’m gonna get the picture/card blown up and framed too. Thanks again…he’s amazing!!!

  6. TJ Says:

    Love these. Cory looks fabulous, and he’s obviously a charming host! So glad your visitors got to see all of you!

  7. suzanne o'meara Says:

    thank-you for sharing beautiful pictures .

  8. lethie2012 Says:

    I thought El Mariachi passed away. I have my coffee mug with his picture on it. He is by far the most stunning mustang I have ever seen. Glad you all had time to visit.


  9. Love the photos Pam. What a handsome boy, just like his dad! I’m anxious to get back over there and meet him.

  10. pnickoles Says:

    I think that sometimes too Puller. Cory looks very much like his incredible sire.

  11. pnickoles Says:

    Robyn – Cory is young, but yes, I am training/preparing him (with some good help) to be my next trail buddy. He’s smart, willing and has been a joy to work with. 🙂

  12. pnickoles Says:

    Sometime, if you’re ever down this way Connie, you feel free to come by and meet my boy. 🙂

  13. pnickoles Says:

    Thanks TJ! He’s grown hasn’t he? 😉

  14. pnickoles Says:

    Thanks for your comment Suzanne. I’m glad you’re enjoying the pictures.

  15. pnickoles Says:

    Lethie – we lost El Mariachi in July of 2013. Cory is his son.

  16. pnickoles Says:

    Anytime Vicki! 🙂

  17. chris1055 Says:

    The pic of El Marichi was the first wild horse picture I have. He looked beautiful. Glad he left a legacy to treasure.

  18. pnickoles Says:

    That’s awesome Chris. El Mariachi was quite a boy. And you couldn’t be more right – I treasure Cory.
