Our gently giant, Stella left Morning Dove in June to return to her mom, Annette Head and her family. Stella was a great friend to our veterans and many of our adult riders. She was the dream horse for more than one little girl! Stella was the gentle boss of our mare herd – and they miss her strength and quiet rules :). Stella earned her retirement, no doubt about it! We miss those big gentle eyes! Stella, we hope your retirement is the perfect blend of sauntering grazing days and peppermint candies!
We said goodbye to our dear friend Kobe. Kobe crossed the rainbow bridge joining the beautiful herd of Morning Dove horse angels. She was a joy to have in our family and we miss her terribly — but, 28 years and a life full of giving earned her the freedom she now has to run without pain and to rest under her favorite angel tree. We know she is watching over us and sending inspiration to our little artists as they now turn to other Morning Dove horses for their painting fun!
