Somewhere in time's
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.
Mey Lenas Top Secret
(Top Barr X Tiz's Legacy)
It was with very heavy hearts that we had to say "goodbye" to our
Morgan "patriarch" and friend. At the age of 26, our gelding,
Mey Lenas Top Secret developed a lymphatic cancer. We couldn't
allow him to get to the point where he was suffering, and so we had
to make the difficult decision to let him go. He was laid to rest
on our farm on July 21, 2004. Secret was the classic Morgan -
friendly and always willing to give 110%. His list of
accomplishments is incredible! He was a regional champion show
horse, a dependable carriage horse, a teacher, a trail horse, a
wonderful babysitter of foals... - we could go on and on. He will
always be sorely missed. Farewell, dear friend. We know you will
be watching over the foals from above!
Nemours Royal Doll
(Lord Appleton x Nemours Royal Adora)
We are terribly saddened to report the passing of our mare, Nemours
Royal Doll, on March 3, 2007, along with her beautiful filly by
Braveheart. By the great Lord Appleton and out of the excellent
producer, Nemours Royal Adora, Doll was a welcomed addition to our
breeding program and to our hearts. We had always hoped to cross
her on Braveheart and her filly was everything we had hoped for and
more. It is such a tragedy that we lost both mother and daughter.
Dolly will forever be missed, as will her beautiful bay filly. We
know they are romping in the fields of heaven together, along with
the other great horses that have graced this earth, and this is what
has helped to get us through this most difficult time. Her legacy
lives on through all of her wonderful offspring, including the only
foal we raised from her, Canadian Royal Penny. Take care, our dear,
most beautiful friend. We know in our hearts we will see you again.
(Tess' Sleepy Shadow X Hawk's Little Belle)
Sleepys Captress, affectionately called "Tressy", was
our first broodmare. She was by the stallion,Tess' Sleepy
Shadow, and out of the mare, Hawk's Little Belle. She was
truly a remarkable mare with a huge heart! She passed away in
April of 2000, but she continues to live on through her babies.
Muldoon Macaroon, Miller's Royal Joshua, TC Maverick, and TKA Xavier
all demonstrate her versatility and lovable disposition!
