Thank you, Doris, for welcoming me with such kind words. I'm currently writing four novels and won't be coming here often. I came the other day because Mimi Busk Downey and I are working on the Peruvian Paso Longevity Project (see Press Release below). We want to send this survey to as many people as possible and need email addresses for people involved in trail riding, pleasure riding, junior activities, and other non-showing pursuits. Can you or anyone else here (perhaps Melanie Gainey) please send such mail addys to me at: email@example.com? Thank you very much.
The Peruvian Paso Longevity Project is compiling a list of registered (in any registry worldwide) Peruvian Pasos that lived 25 or more years. Since few breeders advise registries when horses die, there is no such "Hall of Fame" in the Peruvian breed. This project will post that information on an Internet website available to all free of charge--a sort of celebration of longevity in the Peruvian breed.
Verne R. Albright and Mimi Busk Downey are organizing this project, which is not affiliated with any organization because they hope to have contributions from Peruvian Paso aficionados around the world. Information is now being gathered through a third-party survey. Those interested in contributing names of horses 25 years of age or more can enter the following survey link in their browsers: SURVEY LINK HERE. That will open a form that can be filled out by computer, making it easy to provide information. Anyone interested is requested to kindly fill out this form with as many names as possible and submit it. To enter additional horses, enter the survey link in your browser again and you will get another form.
There is no limit to the number of horses one person can submit. Names and data can be contributed by anyone--not necessarily the horse owner. The horses can be deceased or living.
Hello Doris, I'm very happy to be on this site. I have tried several other sites and found them to be rather childish. Also, nobody could relate to how wonderful our Peruvian horses are! So Bravo to you and this wonderful site. I look forward to many visits here!!!
