AHA My Yankee - always known
as "DooDah" was kindly put down last month at his home pasture in
New Elm, Georgia. He was twenty-five years old and had suffered
from chronic laminitis for his entire life - so was never ridden.
He would have up to several years between attacks, so did enjoy
romping and playing most of the time.
His occupation was enjoying his life with his
sister, AHA My Brendah, and his friend, Beth. He was a faithful
friend who always came to Beth's whistle or voice and who always
offered a warm nuzzle and a soft whicker.
His father was My Adventure, former National
Arabian Champion and his mother was an Egyptian Arabian from Wayne
Newton's horses in Las Vegas. DooDah loved a hot bran mash, apples,
carrots and to have his back scratched.
He will always be missed. He owed his long
life to his farrier, Tony Stiltner, who saw to it that his feet and
shoes were always perfect.
He is survived by his grieving sister, Brendah
Sue Louise (My Brendah) and by his always grieving friend, Beth.
His great friend, AQHA Poco Lenora - always known as Sweet Thing -
died ten years ago.
