A Tribute to Caboose

CabooseCaboose, or Booty Boots as he was more affectionately known around the barn, was a 17 hand Holsteiner Gelding who was imported from Carol Gee’s Fernhill Farm in Ireland. Auburn and Caboose had a strong partnership with exciting future plans. Together, the pair had recently qualified for CCI** and planned to shortly contest the Advanced level. Unfortunately, Caboose sustained a sudden accident, causing multiple fractures to his right hind leg. caboose Auburn had just returned to the country and was faced with making the heartbreaking decision with her partner in ownership Larry Sawyer to humanely euthanize Booty Boots. With the guidance of her trusted Veterinarian Dr. Paul McClellan, she and Larry said goodbye to their beloved equine team partner in November 2011. Everyone in the barn will miss Caboose for years to come and Auburn is incredibly grateful for all of the memories they shared.
