Bar Money was one of hundreds of great sons of Three Bars. He was taller than most, long body and not the real classy Three Bars conformation. To make him look thicker we put him in the deepest grass in the pasture. This photo was taken at Decatur, IL when Jim Ray was standing him. I went to Ray's once a year for many years and considered Ray's great friends. Becky Ray was a great food and cold drink provider. We photographed over a dozen horses from Jim's facility and also nearby clients. Becky kept sending lemon ice tea up on the hill all day to keep us all going. Bar Money required a serious handler and Jim did it well.
