DEOCH AN DORUS (aka “DD”) was a chestnut Thoroughbred mare. She was born in 1985 and passed away peacefully on June 5, 2019. DD was brought with her friend Speed Minister aka Speedy to Ryerss Farm on April 23, 2007 by Thoroughbred Charities of America. In spite of health problems through the years, DD was a calm and gentle mare. After Speedy passed away, she became deeply bonded to Omen, one of our mini horses. Soon Smokey, a grey Quarter Horse, joined DD and Omen. DD was a sweet mare who will be sorely missed by all who knew her, both two-legged and four.
CHEVON was a Dutch Warmblood mare born in 1984. Her former owner purchased her at two years old and trained her to become an accomplished dressage horse. She reached third level. She retired to Ryerss Farm on June 14, 2011. She was a gentle and patient mare with humans and horses alike. She chose Budrow as her best friend soon after retirement and he will miss her very much. Her human friends will miss her sweet personality even more.
