Eddie

To Our Heartland Family and Friends

It is with a heavy heart and shattered soul that I have to announce that Eddie… “Mr. Ed”, my best equine friend… passed away this morning. Eddie, approximately 28 years young and the patriarch of the Heartland herd, was our senior ‘riding instructor’ who in his wonderful life helped to train dozens if not hundreds of riders, young and old, in the Whitby & Durham region. He naturally could solve almost any problem, instinctively calm the most nervous rider, and happily help build up anyone’s confidence. Mr. Ed oversaw and looked after HIS equine family, gave the best back rubs, talently nodded “YES” at every opportunity – especially for treats, just loved with all his heart and ‘spoke’ his love clearly through his big, beautiful, brown eyes.

Even at his passing he looked up at me with his crinkled eyes as if to say “Are you all right Mom?”

There will never ever be another Eddie. For all those who loved Eddie as I did, please know that he did not suffer. His passing was swift. He is now in the Great Pasture Beyond eating all the snacks and treats he ever wanted (you know Eddie), and no longer suffering or in any pain from the arthritis, stiff joints, and sore hooves that bothered him in recent months.

I honestly take comfort in knowing that he is now galloping at full charge through endless green fields, proud tail up and flowing, Arab ears tall and forward, leading his girlfriend Claudia and all who went before him on the hack of their lives.

Eddie lived an amazing life – EVERYONE loved Eddie, and I know he knew it.

If love and tears could bring him back, he’d be in his warm stall tonight!

Pepper

Pepper is a Percheron mare, about 17 years old.

She is so gentle! Great for walk/trot/canter in horse back riding lessons. And yet, when Pepper first came to Heartland we weren’t even sure if she would fit in. She has surprised us all!!

Pepper’s surprise talent? She has been the star in a number of photo shoots for wedding/engagement pictures! You can put an inexperienced person on her back and she is only too happy to cooperate. Below are pictures of her from a photo shoot taken for a student portfolio… the model riding Pepper was new to horses, but the two got along right away!
