Letters from Bill's friends -
"Bill is the first horse I ever trotted crossrails and groundpoles on. He was so steady and calm. He is also the first horse I ever cantered on. I remember asking him to trot and he broke to a canter. I laughed so hard and had the time of my life for a whole circle around the indoor ring. The riding instructor, Kerri, was saying, "Make him trot!" I kept saying, "I can't" but secretly, I WASN'T TRYING! Haha! It was my first canter and it felt like I was flying. Every time I think of that long lanky saddlebred I have to smile. I'll never forget him."
