What a great guy, he will certainly be missed by all of us at Wilcox stables. Especially his very infectious laugh. He was fun to be around, always put a smile on my face and always there to lend a hand with horse needs. The ponies are going to miss you too my dear friend. There's a lot of them in heaven for you to tend to and care for. Love from Michelle and Ahote.
