Irish is my TB/QH gelding. I've owned him since he was three and we have grown a lot together. In his youth he was exuberant and sometimes fiery. He's had me off more times than I can recall. But he's also sweet and gentle and generally handsome.
Irish is semi-retired. A few years ago he was diagnosed with arthritis in his spine. While no longer in 'work' he enjoys being ridden and loves the attention.
I let Irish go on October 28, 20022: The Last Gift. He is now buried beside Steele. I kept my promise that he would never leave the farm.
