Equine Obituary - Double Copper Coin

Double Copper Coin passed away at the age of 26-years-old of natural causes at Jerry Collier Stables in Rogersville, Ala. He was owned and loved dearly by long-time exhibitors James and Marjorie Watson of Lawrenceburg, Tenn.

Majorie Watson showed this beautiful horse to many blues at most of the major shows, but was never shown at the Celebration. His trainers through the years wre Larry Massey, Wayne Dean, Kevin Gower and Jerry Collier. His last blue was at the 2008 WHAA Charity Show in Decatur, Ala. He was shown once more at their hometown at the Crossroads of Dixie show in 2009, later retired to Jerry Collier Stables and is now buried there.

Majorie lost her husband earlier and Double Copper Coin was their last horse. This great lady dearly loved him and was pleased that he never suffered. He simply layed down and in ten minutes he was gone. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

The Report extends their sympathy to Watson and the Jerry Collier family.
