Equine Obituary - Cash To The Bone





May 7, 2015, at the age of 24, World Champion Cash To The Bone passed away in Jackson, Tenn., under the ownership of Gerald Wardlow. Foaled on May 13, 1991, to Paige Edwards of Dawson, Ga., he was sired by Coin’s Hard Cash and out of Gen’s Ebony Belle. 

Anyone who had the opportunity to come in contact with the beloved sorrel pony knew he was something special. From carrying young 11 & under exhibitors to the 50 & over class “Bones” captured the hearts of the young, old and all of those in between. Showing an impressive 109 times in his career he captured 24 blues and 19 reserve honors. In 1999 “Bones” and young Callie Stuckey claimed top honors in the Youth 17 & Under Novice class that gained them a world championship title.

Owners who were fortunate enough to share in the life of Cash To The Bone include Paige Edwards, Jerry and Peggy Devlin, Hal and Beverly Newman, Barry and Sharon Carter, Anne Mohon and finally Gerald Wardlow. 

After his extensive show career “Bones” was retired to the pasture life where he enjoyed taking it easy and even trail riding on occasion. This little pony brought memories and joy to many and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
