Let us not forget the horses that have been our friends from years gone past. Some have crossed the rainbow bridge, some have been retired and have new families. Students of Summer Wind will remember the good times we had with Black Jack, Murphy, Missy, Chica, Oscar, Happy, Dusty, Belle.
Black Jack is living in Sandusky with a wonderful lady. He is giving much happiness to his new owner. Happy still lives with Mitch and is turning 33 this year. He looks great. He has lost his vision in one eye, but still gets around and is very happy at Mitch's. Oscar and Dusty are living on a great farm in Aurora. They have acres of pasture. When we dropped them off there I think they thought they had gone to Heaven with all the grass there was to munch on.
Murphy went to the same farm as Black Jack in Sandusky. We got a sad email last fall that he had passed over the Rainbow Bridge. He had several wonderful years there at the farm and I was very grateful that they loved him as much as we did. We lost Missy last year too. It was a very sad day here at Summer Wind. She was the first school horse bought just for the business. The little mare lived a long and happy life...she was 45 when she passed! Clay and Missy spent a lot of time together at pony rides and hundreds of little children thought of Missy as "their" pony.
