Condolences to the Antoines

The Turkey Fair would like to send its very deepest condolences to the Antoines, who tragically lost their beloved Mack, one of their percheron draft horses, today at the fair. It has been confirmed that Mack had a heart attack.

Both Mack and his friend Prince were being rested and watered regularly today. This death was inevitable. The family takes some comfort in knowing that he didn’t suffer and his friend Prince is going to spend a few days with some other horses so that he’s not alone. Prince and Mack had been together for almost 9 years, since they were 1 1/2 years old.

The Antoines are a respected family in our community and we ask that only offers of condolence are left here. They are responsible horse owners with extensive experience. They would like to send thanks to everyone who was so kind in helping them and Mack. Please join us in supporting them through this very terrible time.
