This week we said goodbye to an old friend...actually everybody's friend. After 14 years and three horse farms, Joe left us quietly on a
Thursday afternoon. A few days earlier, he suffered several seizures and was not able to recover. Until that week, he nobly guarded the farm.
He was a cheerful, devoted friend who frequently sat with his front legs crossed. In his earlier years, nothing was more fun than leading a trail ride until the first rabbit or squirrel crossed his path. In his later years he became somewhat arthritic and was happy just to lie in the ring where he knew the horses would be working. Thanks to Cleveland Park, his last years were comfortable and relatively pain free.
Goodbye Joe and thanks for all the years of loyal friendship. We will miss you.
