    Oh, so sad. Goodbye to a legend. Such a classic hunter in every way.

      There has never been a hunter I have like more. Maybe it’s my age.

            She was incredible. I saw her show in the pre-greens, and throughout her career. People would drop what they were doing to watch her go around the ring. With good reason!

              Such sad news. She's still my hunter ideal.

                  The best there ever was, IMO.

                    A horse for all of us to study and remember!

                      She was amazing. And wow, 33? What a wonderful long life!

                          Never saw her in person, but loved reading about her and looking at the many photos. She was so lovely.

                            Such a sad day I learned about her here on this very board and always loved when Chanda would talk about her. I remember "foal watch" for both of her foals and how exciting it was to see them and to watch them grow up and start their careers.

                                She was just perfect. So glad she had such a long and wonderful life adored by so many.

                                  She was the perfect show hunter. Time flies, I didn't realize she was 33, glad she lived to such a ripe old age.

                                    Any video of her anywhere?

                                      So sorry for your loss Cbolen . What a testament to your watchful care and love that she lived to be 33 years old.

                                        So true, I remember what seemed like the entire WEF showgrounds trailing after her as they headed to the big grass hunter ring...

                                        (I remember that year, I was stabled next to Vintage Farm and across from Centennial. I spent the entire time starstruck and no, that isn't me with multiple restraining orders, why do you ask?)

                                        Godspeed, Rox Dene. The last page of a great era has truly been turned.
                                        Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.
