Sympathy to the Ashkers on their loss of The Big Island
I don’t know the Ashkers, but wanted to say how sorry I am about them losing The Big Island. I just saw his memorial on Eventing Nation. I’ve followed this guy since Laine started him Novice, he was hard to miss since he was a BIG boy. They've put a lot of hard work into him the last few years and he was really coming along nicely. It must be devastating to lose such a nice horse on the way up. Laine has really faced a lot of tragedies in this sport, here’s hoping the rest of 2013 goes much better for her. Sorry again for the loss of your lovely horse.
