R.I.P. Vinny, 1986-2014

You were always a rank-ass bastard, and I didn't learn any dressage from you, but you taught me how strong I could be, and you showed me how to be the rider, trainer and person I wanted to be. For that, you will always be my Schoolmaster. 


  1. Shannon, saw the Facebook post, so I rushed right over.

    So sorry about Vinny. I know you two had a long and somewhat adversarial relationship at times, but none of it limited the love you had for him.

    RIP, Vinny. You were one significant and precious boy in this world. Run free.

  2. Very sorry to hear this. :(

  3. I'm so sorry about Vinny, Shannon. I know he caused you so much pain (literally and figurativel) but you were an amazing mom to him despite everything and I know this is hard. Rest in peace, Vinny.

  4. I am very sorry for your loss.

  5. So sorry to hear this news. You did a lot for Vinny too. Most people wouldn't have stuck by him after all you've been through. (((hugs)))

  6. Sorry to hear about Vinny. It sounds like you learned a lot from each other and he had to know he was loved.

  7. Thanks so much for all your kind words. They help immensely. I'm so glad I have the support of this wonderful community of horse people!


Thanks for your comments! I love them, even though I'm really bad at replying. (Sorry! I always say I'm going to work on that, but then I get distracted...... Hey is that a squirrel?)

I've turned off the word verification because it's hard to read and annoying. But, I'm also too lazy to approve comments, so now it's a free for all. Please note: If you spam my blog, I will spam you back. Literally. I will hunt you down and pelt you with canned meat until you beg for mercy. So, please, no spam!
