|Damrock Farm was lucky enough to share the last year of life with a grand gentleman.
Rhythm and Blues, known to those who loved him as "Joey", arrived at our farm In
September, 2011. The quintessential "gentle giant", Joey was a Belgian Warmblood
gelding and one of the most personable characters I have met in my nearly 50 years of
dealing with horses. He had lots of issues, which included among other things, shivers (a
neurologic disease), a history of colic and ulcers, suspensory problems, the list goes on.
Through it all he remained, to his very last moments, a sweet and loving guy. He talked to
everyone who walked into the barn, begging for carrots and peppermints and never
became cross or disagreeable, even on his worst days. I will miss him greatly.
REST IN PEACE, BIG MAN, YOU DESERVE IT.
