Chics Magic Potion and Bob Avila
On Dec. 14, 2012, the horse world tragically lost the great reined cow horse performer and sire, Chics Magic Potion (Smart Chic Olena x Remedys Magic Potion x Remedys Reply). Bob and Dana Avila, “Magic’s” owner, Kenneth Banks, and everyone who was close to the 12-year-old stallion during his superlative career will certainly mourn this loss.
