Chasing Rainbows As part of our Highmark Walk campaign this year, one of our riders has chosen to raise funds to benefit our Scholarship Fund. This fund allows us to provide financial assistance to riders who need it. As we get ready to begin our Spring session, every donation to this fund will help ensure that riders with disabilities are not turned away due to finances! To contribute to the scholarship fund, visit Team Lucy's page at hcf.convio.net/site/TR/Harrisburg/HighmarkWalk?team_id=11379&pg=team&fr_id=2624.
Great, quick read! Things I never knew.Man o' War was known for being a sour horse, inheriting his dam's high-strung temperament and his sire's fiery disposition.
During his retirement at Faraway Farm, Man o' War befriended his groom, Will Harbut. Will and "Big Red" were opposites. Will's melodic voice and calm demeanor helped sooth the horse. Every day, Will Harbut would fed, water, hand walk, and groom Big Red. He mucked out his stall and bathed him when the horse needed it. When it was time for Man o' War to fulfill his stud duties and make the trip to the breeding shed, it would be Will Harbut whom would walk him there and back. The two spent all day with each other. Will was the first and the last person Man o' War saw every day.
When Will Harbut died in 1947, Man o' War was distraught. The horse began to fade, riddled with sadness. He passed away less than one month after his groom, listed as an apparent heart attack. Perhaps his heart was so broken that he could no longer stand to be alive without his best friend.by Champions of the Track ... See moreSee less
