Memorials



The Animal Health Foundation understands and respects the desire of our donors to support laminitis research in the memory of specific horses they may have known or loved. Maybe it was your own horse. Maybe it was a famous horse like Secretariat or Barbaro. Maybe it was a client's horse you worked on as a vet, farrier or technician.

This page is for them. They will never be forgotten by you or by the Animal Health Foundation as we pursue the answers we need to free horses of this disease.

This page will grow and change as AHF receives feedback about the wall. At this early stage, the names are in a simple list in the order in which the donations were received.

Please send your check with a note stating your donor's name and the name of the horse you would like added to the list to


Animal Health Foundation
3615 Bassett Road
Pacific, MO 63069

If donating by the PayPal link on the AHF website, you will need to send an email to notify AHF that you'd like your donation linked to a memorial listing.

If you would like your memorial gift to be anonymous, please specify that, or else provide a name you'd like associated with the memorial donation.

Good news! 2016 Update for the Memorial Wall

AHF would like to add more information about the horses listed on the Memorial Wall. Whether you are sending in a new horse to be remembered, or already have added a horse, please consider sending in a photo and some descriptive text about your horse.

Please provide a good-quality photo and some text with a description of your horse or a personal message of your choice. Text limit: up to 100 words. (AHF reserves the right to decide not to post and/or edit any and all text. Please, no commercial messages, profanity or links.)

Send text in the body of an email and photo as a low resolution jpeg or png attachment to the same email. Give clear reference in the subject line: i.e., "Laminitis Memorial Wall | Buckshot | from Suzy Quimberly" (Laminitis Memorial Wall | Horse Name | Owner's Name". Include the email address of the person who should be contacted if AHF has questions.

Note: Photos and text are NOT REQUIRED. You can make your horse's listing as simple as his or her name and your name, if you wish.

Here's a sample listing for the updated 2016 Laminitis Memorial Wall:




Buckshot

Remembered by Suzy Quimberly 

It is still hard to believe that Buckshot is no longer with us. We would like to thank Dr. Santoz and our farrier, Lucy Battersby. I hope the Animal Health Foundation will find a way to prevent and cure laminitis so no horse will have to suffer like Buckshot did.

Sarahorsie
Pamela D. Gibson

Sarahorsie is the equine love of my life, my animal soulmate, and I miss her! She was in our lives eighteen years and "owned" us fifteen years. We share a very special love story plus she and I were inseparable. I promised her she will never experience laminitis, although, sadly I was not able to keep my promise. Our wish is this invaluable research one day will unlock the mystery of Equine Metabolic Syndrome discovering the irreparable link to laminitis and thereby saving many an equine in the near future. --Pamela D. Gibson

Gran Kaiser (Kizer)
Jill Alchorn

Gran Kaiser (Kizer) 1990-2016 Hanoverian gelding show hunter/equitation horse. Cushing's induced laminitis. We released Kizer from his pain in January and his absence is still felt. He had class, character and always a clown. Forever in our hearts. --Jill Alchorn

Bud E. Pony

I miss you so much, Bud-Bud, but I’m glad you’re no longer in pain. The Helping Horseshoe kids miss you, too. See you by the Rainbow Bridge. --Margaret Sharon

Cooly Mon
Lauren Edwards

Cooly Mon was the horse that could have gone terribly wrong but couldn’t have been a better fit. From the baby horse that loved to stand in a creek to Pony Club Dressage and Games Nationals and many eventing competitions, Cooly’s gigantic heart made his horse and rider team unbeatable. He beat the odds many times and infected me with the incurable horse fever. Here’s to hoping more research can save other best friends soon. --Lauren Edwards

Owners:  Teresa Frank and Barb Keane

We adopted him for his retirement years. He was a wonderful guy. We enjoyed him so much and always did our best to make him happy and comfortable in his battle with Cushings/Laminitis. He deserved it and we miss him dearly.
