Thank you everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and kind words. Thank you Smitty. I know he would appreciate the "closing" of this site in his honor. I extended the words from everyone here to his family and they appreciated hearing from his online family.

I remember Steven as "EARTHQUAKE" on WJIG am in Tullahoma. I listened to Him on the way to work in the mornings. I can remember a caller phoning in some round bales of hay for sale on swap & shop. It hit His funny bone about the ROUND bales. He must have been thinking SPHERICALLY round. A few years back I sold Him some TWH lit at the Wiser Farm sale. I went a few years without seeing Him, then when We had just gotten in the door at Miller coliseum during the Int., I heard hey Sadlbum. It was Big'n & I was pleasantly surprised. We talked awhile & I could see that He had serious health problems. I am so sorry that he has passed on & know that He will be truly missed by everyone. RIP Steven

Kelly,

I am so sorry to learn about Steven's death. He was such an asset to this site with his knowledgable comments and insightful observations. We all benefitted greatly from his presence here. He will be sorely missed. Please convey our condolences to his family and friends.


Smitty,

Thank you for "closing" the site for a day in honor of "big'n". That is a very fitting tribute to a "world-class" horseman.

The Walking Horse world has lost one of it's greatest and most true fans. No doubt, this forum has as well.

My condolences to the Davis family. William Pennington brought up Mr. Davis a few days ago. William was telling me about showing Hallelujah as a weanling...at Louisville.

I'd like us to take a moment to remember the innocent lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001 in the World Trade Center, pentagon, and the airplanes. Say a prayer for our service members serving at home and abroad, keeping us safe.

Thank you Smitty. That was very moving. One of my dearest friend's brother was in the first tower...it was many hours before we knew he got out. This is a very trying day for her every year.

As most of you know, it is a very emotional day for me as well. Our youngest son was about to unload from a tour bus at the Capitol steps (should have already been inside there, but they were delayed due to heavy traffic and the providence of God) when someone with a radio heard that the Pentagon that they had passed only moments before had been hit. Those kids on that Senior trip have some fantastic pictures of the Pentagon burning. That is how close they were. The next day (at the time the Towers were hit) they were scheduled to have been at the base of the Towers, on their own, in New York City. I will forever feel an attachment to those brave souls who brought that plane down in Pennsylvania because in my heart I will always believe they saved the life of my child and many others, since that plane was surely headed straight for the Capitol. A brave bus driver took those kids down through suburbs, farmland, and backroads and got them back to their hotel in New Jersey and brought them most of the way home that night. He was relieved in Virginia about midnight and they arrived here about three in the morning. I am flying the United States flag today and will hug Brandon tightly when I see him this afternoon with tears in my eyes for all those who can't hug their family member tonight. He rarely speaks of that day, but I know the effects will be with him forever. I am sure he harbors much in his heart that we will never know about. God bless America and all those who serve to keep us safe even today and be with all those who still suffer from their losses.

Now that things have settled down a little, I just wanted to tell everyone thank you for your thoughtfulness and prayers. They have been much appreciated. Hopefully Lady will heal up soon and can get back out there and win some blues for Steven! Again, thank you all.

Horsegurl,

We'll miss Steven here on the board, but we're glad you joined us. Good luck in the showring!


Everett,

We continue to pray. Keep the Faith.



As for this day, it has meaning for me as well. As I've said before, my parents were in a plane bound for the West coast when the towers were hit. They were grounded in Cincinnati and I had to go pick them up. I remember how pretty it was that day and how the horror we all saw just didn't seem to fit with the very blue skies. Very surreal. That day changed our country and changed many of our lives for good. On a personal level, nothing has been quite the same for me since.
