Arabian Horses & Woody Madsen

Some of you know that my dear Father in Law passed away recently - What you may not know is that he was instrumental in establishing the Arabian breed in the Northwest. I wanted to share this article written by Mary Jane Parkinson, which came out in the March Issue of
Arabian Horse World Magazine. There will also be another article coming out in Modern Arabian Horse - I do not know what issue yet.

Woody Madsen was truly a rare breed, I feel so honored to have had the opportunity to know him.

I am so sorry to hear about Woody. I spent most of my childhood showing horses with woody and family with many wonderful memories. I have thought much about these times lately and was just recently going through picture that my mom took of Gazi. would love to hear from the family.

Thanks for sharing the story, Teresa...your father-in-law seemed to have been such an interesting would have been good to know him. This is my first time to your blog and your work is delightful. I went back to older blogs and was really captivated by the church at San Rafael. I hopped on your blogwagon to check your future postings. And I thank and welcome you to mine...every blogalong(follower) is very dear to me.
