Here are some of our favorite quotes about Mechanic over the years:
“You can’t even walk from the barn to the practice pen without [someone asking for] a picture,” Allison McDonald said. “If he could sign autographs it would be very handy!”- Following their 2014 win in Green Hunter Under Saddle at the Congress.
“I think the strength of his hind leg is just tremendous. Even when we went to buy him, we wanted something that was diversified, that we could do both events with for the all-around market. I think it’s because of his strength, his height, his beauty, his movement, and that softness.”- Stephen Stephens following Mechanic’s 2014 win in Green Hunter Under Saddle at the Congress.
“I’ve always loved Mechanic since the first time I set eyes on him. He’s very gelding-like: big, jolly, happy, slow-moving, and easy to be around. Also, he’s a ham for the crowd!”- Sandra Morgan in Mechanic’s EC Cover Story in 2015
