Brad Kirby is still in the CCU at Heritage Medical Facility here in Shelbyville, Tenn. On Friday afternoon the Walking Horse Report was told that Brad Kirby had passed.

The following is a post made by Cliff Carlock, Brad's brother, on social media Sunday morning.

"On Friday afternoon our family was told that my brother Brad Kirby was clinically brain dead and when taken off the ventilator he would be gone in minutes. The organ donor people were called in and Brad was taken to the operation room where the ventilator was removed. He struggled all night but wouldn't let go. This morning about 3:30 he woke up and knows his family and is responding to voice commands. He is still very sick but now there is hope. This shows who is really in charge! I'm so sorry for the miscommunication."
