We were so sorry to hear about Windy's passing. He was a very special person to our family. Butch still has fond memories of the colt that Wendy gave to Gene and him when they were young boys. Sparkplug provided many fun hours for him and our children through the years. Seeing Windy when we came to Bolivar was the icing on the cake. He made every trip extra fun. We have only happy memories of Windy! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. Love Butch and Madge
