So, those of you who frequent the Health board may have seen my post that I was going to be MIA for a while due to some personal upheaval. On December 3rd, while in Portland for a long anniversary weekend, I received a call from the attorney of a very dear friend of mine, Gari Dill-Marlow. Gari had been suffering with brain & metastatic liver cancer for some time and sadly, it finally got the better of her. As of that Monday, she had been placed in hospice and was not expected to make it through the next 24 hours. For those in the Arabian horse community, Gari was a pillar and and absolute expert on pedigrees. She owned my colt Wolf's sire Antham and grandsire *Rushan. Antham was the culmination of her breeding program and sadly, her disease struck right as he was being promoted Nationally. He acheived a Canadian National Top Ten Stallion award in the process. Long story short, in her will, Gari left Antham to my care. She passed very early on December 4th. We had very little time to make arrangements for the horse; he was in Arizona, south of Scottsdale, whereas we are up in Washington State. Arranagments were made to get him from Arizona to Southern California where he would be boarded for a little over a week until my husband and I could travel down to get him. We left the evening of Saturday the 15th, drove pretty much straight through until Sunday afternoon to Murrieta, CA. Stayed overnight down there and started the journey North on Monday morning. We were lucky enough to be able to haul a 2nd horse for a co-worker of mine for half the trip. Regardless, he hauled incredibly well; drank and ate the entire trip. Thankfully Wolf had just been gelded and is currently off in training, so my stallion-free existance is now no longer and I have this incredibly beautiful and kind stallion. Where the future takes us, I'm not sure, but I've had requests for breeding from around the country and even more "Antham fans" tracking our progress. So that's where I've been. Now that Christmas is essentially behind us, hopefully life can return to some semblance of normal as we now try to make plans for building appropriate facilties. Without further ado, this is Wolf's sire, Antham: For interests sake, here's Wolf at 2 1/2 years for comparison. Strong gene pool you think??
