This is sort of old news, and for that I'm embarrassed…it should have been shared with you long before now.
Peach and Ted spend what little free time they have raising and showing horses. They've got quite the stable of horses out on their farm.
Back in November, they took a trip to the inaugural American Paint Horse Association Fall Championship Show at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center in Fort Worth, Texas. And, Ted won a World Championship title in the Amateur Weanling Geldings with "Ty Nemo."
The extra special thing about "Ty Nemo" is that he has a rather large seahorse-shaped white mark on the side of his neck, which you can probably see in this picture. We think he was destined to win because of this.
Ted also placed in the top five in the world at the Appaloosa Horse Club with "Sandbar TNT," and with "Confirmed Te and Honey" at the American Buckskin Registry Association. He's quite the showman.
I don't remember if it made the blog- probably not because he wasn't working here at the time- but Andrew has also had success showing horses. He placed 13th in the 2006 American Quarter Horse Association's World Show for Youth with "Obviously A Fella," a two year old gelding. I'm sure there's a picture somewhere, but I don't have it, and somewhere Andrew is thanking someone.
They’ve got some awesome horses out on the “south 40”. They were even nice enough to let us ride some of them at the last Madl farm party. It’s hard to believe they also have a wicked beach bar.
