Farewell my friend...

Sir Whatmore
5 May 1998 to 9 May 2015

        To my owner,

When I won races and brought you glory, 
you cheered and praised me. My owner.

When I could no longer race and had to retire, 
you cast me aside and abandoned me. My owner.

Alas, when I was into the twilight and breathed my last, 
you were unaware as you have forgotten me. My owner.

       Your once faithful race horse,

ask how little had you done in return" - Author Unknown

Thank you Anne for capturing these photos of Whatmore for us to remember.
