We've just done 3 albums for the Tamarack Facebook page. There are hundreds of horses and riders going back at least 40 years.

Check them out:

Hey Daryl
How are things going??

Those pics are so cool, could you let me know if you run across any pics. of Denny's horse "Quillcote" I think it would have been back in the 70's?

Thanks! Tammy :winkgrin:

There are 2 pictures of Quillcote, one from GMHA, one from Radnor, about 1975.

He was by a son of Princequillo, hence the "quill" name. I named him after my friend Bill Turner`s childhood home in Salmon Falls, Maine, named Quillcote by a former owner, the author Kate Douglas Wiggin, who wrote Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.

Quillcote means "home of the pen", quill, because early pens were made from feathers, and cote, meaning house or home, as in dovecote.

So now you know the derivation of your old horse`s name!

Hi Denny
I think you told my Mom that story when I arrived at Tamarack to be a working student back in mid 80's. Do you remember I brought Quill with me? Those were the days! I miss him still, he taught me a great deal, we were buddies to the end :cry:

I would LOVE to see any pics of you and him. I have 1 from Doornhof, if thats correct? He is jumping up onto a bank with you! Best event horse I have ever had! :yes:

My stepfather,Jed Flagg, evented with Denny in the 70s. I dug out alot of pics of him but I am having a hard time downloading them on to facebook. I have tons of pics of Rhythm that I will post as soon as I can. For now I have a pic of Sir William jumping the table at YFM.

I spent some time last night browsing through all the pictures - thank you so much for putting all of them up! It was really wonderful to get to see all that as well as read about what was going on in the captions.

Came across all of these photos on Facebook this morning and I have signed up as a "fan" of Tamarack Hill Farm. Come to find out, after looking at the pictures, that Denny Emerson is a descendant of General Israel Putnam, of Revolutionary War fame! General Putnam was born and raised in Old Salem Village (now Danvers), MA, which is my hometown. I posted a question to the Facebook account, and received an immediate answer, much to my surprise. What a small world it is ... and what incredible pictures!

These pictures and the stories behind them should be included in the History of USEA (see other thread) if it is ever done.
