Horses that have Blessed us
Aries was Connie's dream horse. She started the 1994 in the pilot program, as Connie's personal horse and first born. She died in November 2012 at the age of 21. This was a shock to Connie and her family as well as a great loss to RCTRC. She is an angel that watches over us all.
Lady Jo 2004.jpg
Lady Jo - was Joel's horse. He got her when she was 17 and we were blessed to have her gentle and nurturing spirit until October 1, 2011.
Larry: Supreme Lite
He was a lesson horse his entire 37 years - he was only here at our farm for a year - but he served Tyler Mountain Stables for many years.
The Pauley family donated his use to us for as long as we needed him. He served us for several years - but when our own herd began to grow in 2005, he was returned to them. We appreciate their kindness!
Fizz was donated in 2001 and retired in 2005 - he was amazing and went to live with Bobby and Barry Carpenter - where he loved Barry beyond words.
Chinook and Brenda 2001.jpg
Chinook was purchased by RCTRC in 1998. He served until he started tripping and was retired to live the rest of his long life at the Linz family until November 17, 2012.
Willy was donated to RCTRC as an old man. He and Nate (in the picture) seemed to always have a similar expression. He was a great addition.
Libbey was our first RCTRC horse. We adopted her from the HORSE of Ohio program at the ripe old age of 22. She was amazing from 1995 to 2001. She served as the gray faced tank for those years - we loved the American Standardbred.
Stuff was purchased in 1998 - but was only with us for 1 month officially.Jeannie had leukemia and as a kid, thats hard. When her parents donated the money for his purchase, then he had to have emergency surgery for an impaction colic, he even at 17 couldn't recover. It is our belief and knowledge that when Jeannie had her follow-up with Cabell Huntington Hospital, the Doctors were amazed at the little girl who carried Stuff's shoe to the appointment was cancer free! Still is!
