A Little More Info and Photos

"I'm actually in tears just to have the opportunity to share a story and pictures of him. I miss him so much and wish I could go back in years to have him in my life again. John never ever did one thing wrong in his life. I love him so much. We actually named our farm after him. It was Domino's Valley."

"My husband actually was at Allmosta Ranch and after seeing John, he took me to see him. That's all it took, just to see and meet him and he became the love of my life."

"It wasn't until years later that I found out he was listed for sale in the Appaloosa News," (August 1970 page 75, September 1970 page 3.) "Sure glad no one else spotted him before we did."
