Nacona and Bambie

I am 15 but when I first saw Bambie I was about 5 or 6 years old. We bought her from a guy that said she was crazy because he couldn't ride her. She would always try to buck with him.I am 15 but when I first saw Bambie I was about 5 or 6 years old. We bought her from a guy that said she was crazy because he couldn't ride her.

I am 15 but when I first saw Bambie I was about 5 or 6 years old. We bought her from a guy that said she was crazy because he couldn’t ride her. She would always try to buck with him.

So my dad bought her and started riding her. When she was just green broke I started riding her. The first time I rode her she laid down with me because she was tired of me riding her. About 2 years after that I was using her for 4-H and she was pregnant with her very first foal. I remember when the foal was born I would take and ride her for an hour to an hour and a half and then bring her home from 4-H and the foal would just go nuts.

I went on to using her for 4-H for about 5 years and won all kinds of grand champion ribbons with her. Last year she was retired as just a brood mare because her knees got so bad that I couldn’t ride her at all any more. She has now had two foals and a third one due in May (2002).
