In Memoriam, Fridays Trash30 Aug 2018, by Uncategorized in
April 14, 1994- August 9, 2018
We are heartbroken to report that Fridays Trash, Stephanie’s partner of close to two decades, was euthanized due to a strangulating lipoma. He left this world surrounded by those who loved him, after bravely battling intermittent colic episodes for several weeks.
The 24 year old registered Paint gelding had been a member of the Swites family for 17 years and captured the hearts of all he encountered. Trash started his career in the Western world, earning his National Reining Certificate with his former owner, Jamie. Stephanie acquired Trash and the pair grew up together with a transition to Eventing, where she campaigned him at the BN level and partnered with him throughout Pony Club to ultimately graduate with her final C2 rating. Most recently in his retirement, he enjoyed teaching many students at Irish Manor Stables.
Trash will always be known for his love of peach ice tea, his soft teddy bear coat, big personality, soft nicker, and love for his owner. Rest in peace, Trash. We love you.
