"EMAIL FROM JULIE"
My nae is July (Julie) Mays and I am your long time Russian fan. I have been following you for a long time on your youtube channel,whenever I need to get an advice I turn to your horsy site. You have no idea how helpful it was to me and my husband. I am a rider in the family but he did get to ride a few times. We absolutely love you and the work you do. giving out so much free gold and people still throwing dirt at it. oh well, their loss. Recently you have been addressing an issue that there is too many bullies coming your way, I wanted to give you back some love instead. I hope you like my art, but if you dont... I will guilt trip you into it! :D I worked three days on it! And yeah... it is Buddy. How funny, I love listening to you talk whenever I draw on my tablet. So one time, in the mid way of me working on you and Buddy Boy I herd you say "I don't know why everybody is always asking about Buddy and not Mr T." Or some thing like that... Well, here is another one of Buddy for you! LOL I was going to do one of Mr T as well but I wanted to send this one first to you.
