The picture on the right is Hoofbeat Acres Got Spunk, a 31.5” dark brown mare, AMHA / AMHR registered, born in 1991 at Buck On Ranch, Clearwater, MN.  She is the dam of Buck On Ranch's multiple National Champion mare, Buck On's Dangerous Curves. Spunky was retired until in spring 2014, when a 5 year old Mini Whinnies Clover Bud member needed a quiet, easy going show horse for the year, so Spunky has took up her second career in 4-H and she loved it! She's back to retirement in 2015, but you never know...!
