    Default RIP George Hennessy

    Just received word that well known shipper George Hennessy was killed in an accident on I95. Heart attack or stroke is suspected. So very sad. He was 82.

    Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.

    How sad, my condolences to the family. I always enjoyed chatting with him when he picked up horses from a barn I groomed at; he will be missed.

    Thank you all for your kind words. My father did, indeed, have a heart attack or stroke (they present themselves the same, apparently) that caused the accident. He was driving a rescue pony to Florida to it's new home and had his wife Cynthia with him. Cyndi is plenty banged up, but is to be released from the hospital today. The pony is headed to Florida with another shipper and is fine.
