All the volunteers gave many kisses and treats to Lorccan in the days before JoAnn waved goodbye to our Old Friend on May 7th as his van left us for a new career in Kentucky at New Vocations. We'll all miss him very much but we know he'll be happy and will make some new, special friends there. Lorccan, who is 12 now, never seemed to settle into retirement. We wish him much happiness in his new career.

On November 15, 2015, Next Question left Cabin Creek for his new home in New Hampshire. His racing owners always loved him and now he has gone to live with and be retrained by their daughter in New Hampshire at Mountain Lane Farm. He will be enjoying some light pleasure riding retraining and happy times with some of his old (human) friends there! We hope that "Q", as we called him, will return to us in his later retirement and we'll all miss him until we see his beautiful big white blaze again.You can still see him on their Facebook page. It's hard to say goodbye, but he has gone to a place where he will be loved.
