Thank you to everyone who spared Preemus a thought.
Thank you to so many of you who sent e-mails, beautiful cards, wrote letters, rang up, offered kind words and sent gorgeous flowers.
I was just so humbled to realise just how many people whose hearts he had touched.
People whom I did not know or weren't even horsey people, people of all ages. Thank You.
Master of the Stables. (written 2002)
Year 2001: "I am a 7 year old 15.1hh Welsh x TB gelding. I try to be a loyal friend and kind by nature. I know I am inquisitive and love exploring. I try to be adaptable, athletic and I see the funny side of life. I am told I am very comfortable, willing and co-operative horse to ride. I love jumping, riding out, being involved with anything that's going on, helping with various jobs and taking part in events. I love meeting people, sometimes they offer me a carrot or something nice. With Patrick, I have established a relationship based on Native American Indian traditions and we enjoy regular rides out over the New Forest 'Riding Free'. That is with no saddle or bridle. We also 'Jump Free' and we have competed in dressage and showjumping 'Riding Free'. I love playing with the football too and standing up high on look-out places."
