Connie with Moondoggie  
Sadly, we have heard that Connie Dreyer, owner and partner of Halynov’s Moondoggie, has passed on She   lived   for   her   horses,   and   Moondoggie   was   her   star.   We   first   met   Connie   when   she   applied   for   a   job   as   our receptionist   for   our   Workers   Comp   vocational   rehabilitation   firm.   We   quickly   realized   that   her   major   talent   was   her rapport with our horses. She became part-time receptionist and part-time horse handler. We   gave   her   a   rescue   horse   who   later   freaked   out   during   a   lightning   storm   and   ran   through   some   neighbor’s barbed   wire.   Connie   painstakingly   and   lovingly   dressed   the   wounds   and   brought   Hallucination   back   to   full   health with minimal scarring. We   gave   Connie   Moondoggie   as   a   young   colt.   When   Connie   relocated   to   another   area,   she   kept   us   apprised   of Moondoggy’s training progress. This is one of her early posts: Moon   is   probably   the   most   magnificent   horse   I   have   ever   had   in   my   life.      He   can   and   will   do   anything   you   ask   of him   from   Jumping   to   cutting,   he   has   really   come   a   long   way.   His   trainers   Patrick   and   Wendy   love   him   to   death. He   is   so   intelligent,   and   demands   your   attention   with   just   his   presence.      First   time   I   took   him   to   a   team   penning just   for   fun   they   about   laughed   me   out   of   the   arena,   because   he   was   an   Arabian   and   had   no   business   working cattle.      Well   I   don't   have   to   tell   you   he   blew   them   out   of   the   water,   and   not   one   snicker   did   I   hear   the   rest   of   the day.      Wendy   rides   him   English   and   his   extension   is   outstanding.      Thank   you   for   such   a   wonderous   gift   as Moondoggie,   he   means   so   much   in   my   life,   and   my   granddaughters.   I   am   glad   to   know   you   all   are   still   around and doing well.” And then a later email: Thought   you   would   like   to   know   Moondoggie   is   doing   quite   well.   He   has   become   quite   a   showman,   and   of   course hams   it   up.   He   has   quite   a   following   and   most   everyone   who   meets   him   is   in   awe   of   his   beauty   and   graceful movement.   Some   are   intimidated   at   the   size   of   him.   I   thank   you   so   much   for   allowing   him   to   become   such   a beloved part of our family. and again: “Since   it   has   gotten   so   hot   (I   hate   the   desert   in   Summer)   we   have   been   riding   at   night.   We   were   at   the   arena   the other   night   and   I   got   some   beautiful   pictures   there.   We   trailer   down   about   8PM   and   ride   till   midnight   or   after,   I   do like   to   ride   at   night.   Plus   I   have   some   real   nice   pictures   of   him   in   the   snow   this   Winter...   I   love   riding   him,   when   I take   him   out   of   the   trailer   people   are   just   in   awe   of   him.   Then   they   see   him   move   and   can't   say   enough   of   his beauty   and   grace.   But   he   is   a   clown,   and   does   like   to   play.   There   are   times   I   have   to   take   him   aside   and   tell   him to   behave,   he   just   thinks   he's   one   of   the   kids.   Because   of   his   size   16.2   some   are   very   intimidated   by   him,   but   his gait   is   phenomenal,   he   is   a   gentle   giant.   I   have   to   thank   you   for   allowing   him   to   be   a   very   important   member   of the family.” Connie   was   killed   in   an   auto   accident   in   December   2010.   We   will   surely   miss   her   and   her   wonderful   updates.   We understand that Moon is now with her sister in Washington. Our love to them both and to Connie’s whole family.
Good-bye dear friend
