Make It Do is an AQHA Hall of Famer!

From the American Quarter Horse Association's website:

America’s Horse, May 1, 2008 – Five individuals and three horses will be inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame during the 2009 American Quarter Horse Association Convention, March 6-9 in San Antonio, Texas.

The American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame was established in 1975 to honor people and horses instrumental in the development of the breed and the American Quarter Horse Association. Induction into the Hall of Fame is one of the highest honors bestowed by AQHA...

Make It Do

Make It Do was born in 1964. A six-time winner on the track, the sorrel gelding who was nicknamed “Peanuts” would use his speed to chase down steers in the rodeo arena and end up in two Halls. Peanuts was purchased off the race track in 1968 and went on to be a rodeo legend. In 1977, the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association awarded a trophy for the first time to the season’s best steer wrestling horse. The top 30 money winners in the event were up for the award and the winner in 1977-78 was Peanuts, who was owned by C.R. Jones of Lakeside, California. Peanuts was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 1979.

If it's possible to have a crush on a horse, then I had certainly had one on Peanuts! My Uncle Stan (Immenschuh) trained Peanuts as a racehorse, before he went onto rodeo arena glory. Congratulations, Peanuts!
