Condolences to the entire Hickman, Manes, and Rhoads family for their loss of beloved Spirit and Silver who was laid to rest Wednesday, July 29, 2009.  Spirit and Silver is owned by Austin and Andrew Rhoads of Stoutland, MO.  Many have watched and have been a fan of Spirit and Silver who went around the ring many times in the Missouri and Tennessee show circuits, winning countless ribbons and championships in juvenile, amateur, and professional classes throughout his career.  Austin and Andrew kindly allowed many individuals to ride and show Silver, gaining the confidence of riding and showing a very gentle and patient performance Tennessee Walking Horse.  Our prayers and thoughts go to the family during this difficult time.
