Red Face's Band

As Good As It Gets! Sometimes, that’s what we have to settle for out here in the beautiful North Dakota Badlands. These photos are a great example of that as it is not always sunny and perfect conditions!

He is out of Mare Lacey and I think he is by Stallion Frontier who now has control of Clinker’s former Band. Tiff and I were the first to discover this little cutie and guessed him somewhere…
