Emails for Elvis

 If anyone could know that pain, I do.  I know how much all the horses mean to you, but then there is that one, that one very special one that takes your heart right away.  I know Elvis was that for you.  Not only what he did for your business but how he was so much a part of you, your heart, your family.  Even with him being gone, that can never be taken away from you.  You are so lucky to have known that kind of friendship and love.  Not many people experience that.  It's a great gift.  He will always be with you.  You are not alone.  We don't know why these things happen, but I would like to think it's to learn from and send us in a renewed direction if we will listen to our heart.

 For me, it created the passion to help others know what these great creatures are here for.  Not just to ride, but that every minute you are with them you are creating a valuable relationship and nothing can match that partnership of love and trust.  After you have had some time to grieve, I think I know you well enough to say, you will be able to take what Elvis taught you and it will only enhance your teachings for both horses and people. 

 I love you and wish I could be there.




I don't even know where to begin....I'm so very sorry. I know you are hurting so.  You gave him a wonderful life, and he has blessed you with his continuing legacy in the beautiful babies you have and are expecting. He will always be in your heart, a part of you, and as much as it hurts now, I'm sure you wouldn't trade one wonderful moment of the love and joy he brought to you with his life, even if it was much too short. Give yourself time to grieve, other things can wait for now.  I wish I could give you a hug....

Take care of yourself....

 love and hugs,



 So sorry to here this.  I know how much you cared for Elvis, and can never understand why the great ones go so early while the "dinks" go on forever! 

 Sending our Love and prayers, 

Buck & Carol


I am so sorry.  I know words cannot possibly make you feel better.  Just know you are in my thoughts and prayers.  Even though I don't physically work with Elvis.....I feel like I know him well working with his photos, videos and babies stuff.  I can't believe this happened.

Love you guys --



 Christine I'm so very sorry. I have seventeen horses and I love them all
but two are the most precious to me. I've already had a scare from both
of them in the past so I can understand how difficult your situation is.
The one thing that I can tell you after years of being there the day
they are born and having to put them down years later is that life has
an amazing way of going on. Something tells me that in a few months time
a beautiful colt is going to come into this world and you will be amazed
and in awe of the stamp his sire puts upon him. Elvis can never be
replaced by any means. But I guarantee you that he wouldn't leave this
life without leaving you a precious gift that has yet to be born.


 I can only imagine what you're going thru after having him so long. Leesha was telling me about your relationship with Elvis, and I am truly sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our prayers. {{{Hugs}}}

 I am so very sorry.  I realize mere words are never enough when we lose a close friend....but they are sincere.   

Only time and remembering the good times help you get through the sad ones, take one day at a time.

 Hang in there!  Prayers your way.

Cindy & Family

 honey.... I am so sorry! I wish I were there to hug you..... I may not have known Elvis.. but I sure know you and how you attach yourself to your equine friends... so I am hurting for you.  Zane Grey went to Heaven 2 weeks ago two.. maybe he and Elvis are chatting about the girls they loved!

 Just got home from work and feel just sick at your news, he was doing so well.  My heart aches for you guys and is broken.   I know how hard it is to lose an animal and he was so much a part of your family, your life, your work, your pride and joy and had become a small part of that for Dad and I too.   Just isn't fair.   I know you will feel numb for awhile and the heartache never completely goes away but things will slowly get better.  Just know our thoughts and prayers are with you.  We just always want the best for our family and are heart broken when you are in pain.

 Take care of each other.  Love, Mom


 Hi Christine,

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved stallion Elvis.  Your family will be in our prayers.  Maybe in some way you will find it comforting to know that my 3 year old HUS futurity horse is named Elvis (Art U Lonsum Tonite).  He is the coolest horse.  I was waiting until I saw you to tell you all about him, but I just thought it was a strange coincidence when I read your email about your Elvis.  Anyway,  my heart goes out to you Christine.  This is the hardest part of having animals.  They are not here long enough as it is without tragedy.  One great thing is that a part of Elvis carries on through all of his offspring.  They will never be the same as him, but that is very cool!

Love and my deepest sympathy,


 Dear Christine, 

 Harvey & I are so sorry to hear the devastating news about Elvis' - our thoughts & prayers are with you.




 I donít know what to say or where to start that will help ease your pain. I know how much you are hurting right now and thereís nothing anyone can say or do that will make it go away. Every ounce of me wants to call and talk to you, but I know every time your phone rings itís going to be more painful; do you answer or let it go to voicemail, it can be overwhelming. Please know how much Iím hurting for you right now, how much everyone who loves you is hurting for you. If all of us could just take some of your pain away and let you be at peace for a while, we would. I will be in touch because I canít go without calling you, even if you let it go to your voice mail, itís okay, because I know, Iíve been there and sometimes itís better not to talk, but to listen. You are all in our thoughts and prayers and I wish you Godís speed on healing from Elvisí passing.

 I know heís forever in your heart and soul and always will be.

Sincerely, Sharon & family


 I am so sorry for your loss.  I know the hurt that your in and I am sorry.

 I am sorry to hear that you have lost Elvis. My thought and prayers are with you.

 Hi Christine, this is terry when Debra called me on the phone and told me about Elvis I was in shock my eye got teary and it was hard to talk. I called my sister Deb who had bred Elvis she also was speechless over Elvis even after being away from him all these years,  but she had been watching him on your website and we had talked about him and how well you and Elvis were doing. I still have his picture on my computer  screen and see him every day when I get to work and when I go home  Elvis is there saying good night. Elvis will always be in our hearts and the thought of him being gone will always sadden us. Although sad I will see him everyday on my screen and the picture we have at home.

 Christine we are so very sad, hopefully time will heal the pain you are going thru not having your friend with you.

 Sincerely  Terry

 Oh Christine:

No, I didnít get your email.  I am so terribly sorry about Elvis!  I know how much you adored that boy and am so sad for you.  Sometimes time isnít enough, but I hope you are feeling better soon.   I will be thinking about you.  Hang in thereÖ.


 I didn't learn about the loss of your stallion until we were leaving and your Mom told me.  I was so sorry and felt so bad for you.  Believe me, we understand how devastating a loss like that is.  As we told you, we lost our young stallion, Lets Talk Color, shortly after we came up here.  We had raised him from a baby and he was the only one we had.  I think you just have to go on and eventually you get over it, but I know how much it hurts now and you have our sympathy.


 You're welcome. Anything we can do, just let us know.. we're here!


 Dear Kristine and Heath,

 I was so deeply saddened to learn about Elvis.  My first impression of him was that he was a powerful, strong horse and I was scared of himÖand then, I saw him with Karen while she was trying to clean his stall.  That's when I realized he was a teddy bear in a big powerful stallion suit and he had the biggest heart.  He was a true champion.  And I know how special he was to you, but you were equally special to him. 

 I know his passing has dampened what would have been an exciting new life in what looks to be an incredible new facilityÖhe'll always be in your heart.  I wish you and Heath the best and I hope over time the pain of losing a very special friend will lessen.

 I am so sorry that I did not respond to this sooner, I have been at our big company event since Wednesday.  Sweetie, I am so sorry to hear this horrible news.  Elvis is and always will be an amazing horse.  He has left a legacy that is to be rivaled by any other horse.  He will always be a huge part of your heart and that will never change.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  PLEASE let me know if there is anything that I can do.  I love you and I miss you, I wish that I could be there to help you through this.

 Christine (and everyone else),

I am so sorry to hear about Elvis.  I was glad Sonny's stall was in the breeding barn because I got to watch Elvis and get to know him.  He was a cool dude, and I can't imagine how devastated you must feel.  I try to believe that everything happens for a reason, maybe God needed a good stud up in heaven.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.  Miss you guys.

Take care,



 hi! sorry i haven't been on my email in a while. school is keeping me really busy! Sorry to hear about Elvis! :( .  I wish i could help more!!! u will be in my prayers!!! Now i miss u guys even more!! Hopefully we will be able to see u guys soon!!!!  Melissa

Christine,  I am so, so sorry to hear about Elvis.  How know how much you loved him.  Whenever I loose one of my animals, I always try to remember what a good home I gave them.  I know Elvis had the very best home possible, all the women he wanted, 2 meals a day, it can't get much you to love him.  He had a great life with you, it only ended way too soon.


Christine and family

IM SORRY that such an awesome horse had to be taken so early!! It is truely mind numbing how something or someone that brings us grate joy can just be gone in the blink of an eye!! It saddens me that something had to happen to such an awesome person!! Elvis was an awesome horse and there will never be another like him and Just remember even though he is physicaly gone the memories you have of him are still there and always will be!! I like to think that memories are gods gift to us so we never forget!! 





Oh Christine, I'm so very sorry for your loss.  I know how hard it is to let someone go that is so close to you.  Elvis was such a great boy.  Prayers to you and yours.

Katie, Gordon and Alexi (and Lucy!)


Christine, I'm sorry for your loss. I hope it gets a little easier for you with each passing day. He was a sweet boy. ~Jessica


His babies will live on to make their Daddy proud. My prayers and sympathy are with you. He was a wonderful beautiful horse that I will always remember was a pleasure to be around and a gentlemen at all the horse shows. Take care




I am so very sorry to hear about Elvis and you have my deepest sympathy.. He was a fantastic horse and I feel incredibly lucky to have one of his sons... If you need anything please let me know and you are in my thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time for you and your family. those of us who have had that once in a lifetime horse truly know what a tough time you are going through and once again if there is anything you need or I can do for you donít hesitate to ask

Lots of Love and Good Wishes


Gary and I are SO sorry.  Nothing can make the pain go away and only time heals the heart.  I talked to my brother just before I read your e-mail and he ran over his dog today and he is just numb.

 God gives us them to love and enjoy but there is a price when we lose an animal.  We love you guys and just know your in our thoughts.

 Sharon and Gary

 Christine & Family,

 I am so sorry for your loss.  Let me know if you need anything, or if you just need to talk.  I have been thinking about you all day, you and your family are in our prayers.


 Glenys and Family

 I am so sorry for you and the family over the loss of your beloved Elvis!  I truly understand the depth of your feelings after the loss of my Moose.  Seeing the grief you shared with me over a horse you were training, I can't imagine how you are suffering over this.  You assured me that my pain would lessen over Moose - you were right - but he is always in my heart and I am sure Elvis will live forever in yours.  If there is anything I can do for you - you can count on me.

 Christine - you have my prayers - you will carry the loving memory of Elvis forever in your heart.


 I am so very very sorry.  I don't even know what to say, since I know nothing will help.  I called Dave to let him know, and he was very upset when he hung up the phone.  I wish we were closer to give you guys a hug.  We totally understand if you aren't up to coming this way this weekend.  It might be a weekend to hole up with the family.  Take care Christine - we'll be thinking about you guys.
