well this is what was put up on the studs site that owned him
Richard & I would like to thank everyone who sent their heart felt wishes and lovely memories of our boy 'Buzz'.
He was laid to rest today at Tamarang and there is great sadness amongst the team there.
Only six weeks ago we had worked him o...n a cow, for what unknowingly turned out to be the final time, he was so 'sharp' at that time he could have been shown.
Recently we began treating him for the early stages of Cushings Disease and following his treatment he had an allergic reaction and suffered what Richard believes was a heart attack.
He began failing fast over the past week and the decision to put 'Tassa' to rest had to be made.
- He owed us nothing, we owed him everything!
He was a horse so 'cow smart' he made tough cows look easy to the judges.
He touched all our hearts at Tamarang and there are no words to describe what he meant to us, however perhaps this quote below comes close.
'A horse gallops with his lungs,
Perseveres with his heart,
And wins with his character.'
'Tassa Lena' has been laid to rest nearby the great 'Docs Freckles Oak'.
