2018 North Dakota Horse of the Year Nominee: Miss My Gun

Miss My Gun – Margaret Schmitke

Miss My Gun, to us Misty, is one of the grittiest souls I have ever met.  She was a basket case when she came to us as a sale consignment and we worked hard to rebuild her and help her love her job. When she didn’t sell and there was discussion of auction, we bought her.  She just needed more time. Now, just 2 competition  year’s later this little cowbred working fool has  acrued a saddle, several buckles, and  close to 12,000 in winnings on our tax return.  This, despite a torn hamstring that was predicted to end her career in January of 2018.  She came back fiercely and won a saddle and nearly $1500 in her first 2 weekends back last May and June. Then, she carried me safely to the end of the season as I finished the year at almost 6 months pregnant for our final run.
