We just received a note from the family that purchased Denny Haskew's contribution to Santa Fe's Trail of Painted Ponies- "The Stone Pony". We're happy it's still being loved and admired.
Originally placed at the family's home in Houston, Tx, "Trigger" they shared a photo with a young rider about 15-years ago; and now, photographed headed to it's new home and placed on Willie Nelson's 500 acre "Luck Ranch" in Spicewood, TX where the family now lives. Trigger overlooks panoramic views of Hill Country and greets anyone who drives up the hill, including Willie, wife Annie, and their 70+ rescued horses at Luck Ranch.
Trigger the Stone Pony joins another Trigger at Luck Ranch, Willie's 50+ year old guitar… named after Roy Rogers' horse. Because Roy said he never left home without Trigger… Willie never leaves home without his guitar, so he decided years ago to affectionately name his guitar “Trigger”.
“THE STONE PONY: All of life combines in this wonder called the Universe… This ’stone pony’ is a small attempt to show that a piece of stone and a horse are both living energies of this universal home.” -Denny Haskew
