What a joy and some baked in anxiety to know your Casey! It was an adventure to hike to Casey’s magic kingdom home, with a flower-lined boardwalk leading to the theater draped curtains in his villa-like quarters (barn) to meet him. Casey and NC kept a spotless horse home that looked like a sultan’s palace.
Athens County horse lovers met Casey the night of an Ohio Horse Council meeting. It was a beautifully decorated event. We knew Casey had health issues (colic prone) and monitoring him, OSU vet on speed dial and keeping him comfortable, was key to his longish life. Casey was and still is a gleaming star - it was a privilege to meet Casey in person. I learned so much from Casey and NC. Much about horse keeping, horse humor, and letting people into our complicated horse world...
Telling photo stories about our horses connects us to that special horse-loving gene network... the friends who know it is more painful and heartbreaking to bury a horse than it is a dog, at least it is for me. A connection to your friends who always like to hear your horse stories, especially the ones who no longer grace and graze our green pastures.
