Listowel's Chieftain
"Chief"
(DOB unknown - September 2007)
Chief was a striking chestnut & white
pinto of unknown breeding. He was a
Huntsman's horse with the Limestone
Creek Hunt Club for many years and a
barn favorite with his outgoing
personality. While working at the staff
barn of LCH, Maggie spent many hours in
Chief's saddle. Upon the death of his
owner, LCH Huntsman Anne K. Adams,
Maggie offered to retire Chief at North
Hill Farm. Anne and Chief were an
inseparable pair to the end and Chief
followed his beloved Anne just 6 short
months after she left us.
We still think of them both every day.
Angel
(DOB unknown - 8/30/2011)
Angel was a unique sooty palomino
QH/Morgan cross mare.
She spent the majority of her life as a
trail horse and came to North Hill
Farm to enjoy semi-retirement. She
spent the first few years trail riding
with George and in her later years
here, she gave the nieces and nephews
an occasional pony ride. She was also
our foal-sitter extraordinaire. Her
passing greatly saddens us.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes
to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so
they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our
friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those
who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember
them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content,
except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to
be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and
looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly
he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him
faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling
together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon
your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into
the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from
your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Walkabout
"Kate"
(May 1992 - May 2015)

Imported KWPN mare by Aram out of Katelijnte (Gondelier)
"Kate" was an exceptional mare in every way. A proven 3'6"+ hunter
that prior to import was a successful national level showjumper in
Holland. In the US, She was shown in everything from Adult Amateur,
Amateur Owner, Juniors and Regular Working Hunters and has won
classes at every major show on the East Coast including, but not
limited to, WEF, Hampton Classic, Lake Placid, etc. She was a fantastic
scopey jumper and a great mover with a big, easy stride. She was a mare
with a huge heart and the mind of a saint. She was a fantastic mother to
her 4 foals and loved retirement as a broodmare. Though they have big
shoes to fill, her legacy will live on through her fabulous foals.
Thank-you to Rachel Suna for letting Kate spend her last days at
North Hill Farm. She will be greatly missed.
