I'm so sorry to hear this! He certainly added great things to our gene pool and was a super, super stallion - one of the great, rare G-line stallions. We will certainly miss him. Sending my condolences to Mo and everyone at Rolling Stone Farm.
I called my Mom tonight, to inform her of the passing of Gold Luck. It was a wonderful conversation reminiscing about his younger days, his relationship with his donkey friend, memories from his 100 day test, as well as discussing some of the others we bred back then, so many of them now gone. I know I speak for many when I think about how truly blessed we have been to have so many wonderful horses in our lives and to know we have the privilege of seeing them live on in future generations.
Cheers to Mo and her love for Gold Luck, to her foresight, and others', whose dedication pioneered the WB industry here in the USA.
Gold Luck was truly one of the "Early Greats" in American Sporthorse Breeding.
My heart aches for Mo's loss. I knew Gold Luck from the early years; what a wonderful gentleman he was. I had two offspring by him: Ghita who was a USDF Horse of the Year, won at Devon and placed well in the early USDF Young Horse Championships, went on to Grand Prix. Gibraltar was a gentle giant who was the mount for a winner of the USDF Dressage Seat competition. Such talented horses, yet amateurs could ride them. He will be missed.
