(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.
(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.

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.
|I’ll lend you for a little while my grandest foal, He said.
for you to love while he’s alive and mourn when he is dead.
It may be one or twenty years, or days or months, you see,
but will you, till I take him back, take care of him for me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, and should his stay be brief,
you’ll have treasured memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,
but there are lessons taught on earth I want this foal to learn.
I’ve looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true.
And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes, with trust, I’ve chosen you.
Now will you give him total love, not think the labor vain,
nor hate me when I come here to take him back again?
I know you’ll give him tenderness and love will bloom each day,
and for the happiness you’ve known, forever grateful stay
But should I come and call for him much sooner than you’d planned,
you’ll brave the bitter grief that comes, and someday, understand.
|I was there when into this world you came
I helped you to stand, I gave you a name
I promised to care for you and my promises I keep
I know this is what's best though it makes my heart weep
On you I laid many a hope and a dream
So much potential just waiting to be seen
Your path it shone bright and I could see you a star
But now those dreams are impossibly far
I promised you love and a home of your own
Where you would be cherished until old you had grown
Your stay in this world has been far too brief
And I can't find the words to express the depth of my grief
My heart is breaking and this weight threatens to crush me
I ask now more than ever for you to just trust me
Right now life seems so cruelly unfair
But as I once promised I will always be there.
So as you take your last breath I will hold you and tremble
Sweet baby you are loved and will be remembered
