I find myself feeling small. My heart aches selfishly. The breed has lost two passionate advocates of the Peruvian Horse - Dr. Jorge Galante and Sonja Wirth - this month. They were both a blessing in my life and will be missed.
At Midwest Horse Fair in Madison, we will be sharing memories of Jorge Galante in a memorial wall. If you would like your message included, please send it to me by April 1st.
We have lost so many wonderful people in our breed. I have not been active here on PHW, or in the Peruvian Horse world for a while...life has taken me in some different directions, but I will always cherish the memories of the remarkable people and true advocates for the Peruvian Horse breed I have met over the years.
Dr. Jorge Galante will always hold a special place in my heart, as I was fortunate to live 45 minutes from his ranch, and worked with him when we ran the Classic Peruvian Show in Wisconsin. I will always remember his generosity, hospitality, genuine friendship and his dedication to the Peruvian Horse breed with a smile.
