Heiner from Middlebrook Fm (In Loving Memory)

Heiner was in his prime when we lost him unexpectedly in 2013 due to complications from the gelding procedure. Heiner and Annemarie shared a special bond and friendship as they had started their training together. It was a tragic loss but he will forever be in our hearts and memories.
