    Default Carol Lush

    I have very sad news for all her friends, supporters and the horse community at large. Carol Lush passed away at her home, Mapleside Farm, early Sunday morning, July, 19. She had waged the bravest of battles against cancer for over 2 years and finally could fight no more. Her passing was peaceful and she was surrounded by loved ones, both friends and family, constantly during her last days. She was so loved and will be deeply and truly missed.

    So sorry to hear that. I didn't know her well, but she seemed like a lovely person, and of course I'll always be grateful to her for producing my Slate.

    What sad news. I hope she is in a better place, for her, and out of pain. Isn't it nice to know she had friends and family with her when she passed. I know she will be missed.

    The hunter/jumper and sport horse breeding world has lost a great mind and the knowledge to produce lovely, talented horses. Our world is a little emptier today.

    So sad. What a great human being.

    Very sad to hear this. I have a lovely 3 yr old by Carol's stallion Magical -- he'll get extra hug tonight - although I never met Carol in person, she was delightful to deal with when it came to breeding and I'm sorry I never got a picture of Truman off to her -- I'm glad she went peacefully and with friends and family at her side......I always like to think when great horsewomen (and men) cross over the bridge all their horses (dogs and cats) are there to greet them!

    R.I.P. She was a wonderful person. I only met her just in the last several months through mutual friends, and business arrangements of her horses. I was just at her place on Friday to pick up a gelding we purchased from her. All her ponies and horses are gorgeous! She really loved her horses and did the best she could to find them good homes. Her legacy will live on in them..

    I am so sad to hear that Carol has left us. She was a devoted and dedicated horsewoman, and an honest and knowledgeable lady. She was the breeder of some wonderful ponies and will leave an amazing legacy. God speed, Carol. You will be missed.

    Carol was lovely to do business with. She loved her horses and ponies so much and dealt with all situations with the kind of integrity one seldom experiences. She will be missed and her legacy will live on. Sad news, sad loss.

    That is so sad to hear. I never met her but she had talked to my trainer about some of her horses while she was trying to get them back and I followed the thread listing the ordeal she was going through. I'm so glad she got most of her horses back before she died. At least she had some resolution on that problem.

    Carol was a great person, intelligent and brave, rational when she was trying to retrieve her ponies, willing to help others. She faced her cancer with courage and resolution. I heard a great story today about her helping a neighbor who had an injured GSD years ago, going thru a snowstorm to help out.
    Carol was lucky too, as she had wonderful friends, Alix and Kane and Julie and Kate and Mimi and Peggy (who was heroic in the final weeks) and of course Steve, they had been together since they were 17 yoa!. That group of friends stood beside Carol in the last two years when she needed their support.
    Her legacy will be her ponies and her friends. Carol knew how much you cared for her and how much you did for her.
    Funeral is Thursday in Allentown.

    OOps- I also posted this news in the Sport Horse forum. Didn't think to check if it was posted here first. My apologies.
