Cool Texas Cash, the beautiful bay 12-year-old gelding owned and shown by Shane Auman and Skylar MacLeod, died March 16, 2013 from complications of colic.
Purchased in 2008, “Cool Tex” quickly became Skylar’s 12-17 mount and the stylish pair could be seen any Saturday night in North Carolina, South Carolina or Virginia. They captured many titles together, the latest being Virginia’s Performance Horse of the Year and five other high point awards.
“During show season, the trailer never left the barn without ‘Cool Tex’ being on it,” said Shane Auman. “During the off season, he and Skylar built a wonderful friendship trail-riding and barrel-racing. He was the perfect best friend for any young girl.”
Cool Texas Cash will be greatly missed by Shane and Skylar.
