Equine Obituary - Man Of Mine



     Man Of Mine, a 15-year-old gelding that was owned, loved and shown by Marina Barclay, passed away Wed., Oct. 27, 2010 following colic surgery at Rood & Riddle Veterinary Hospital in Lexington, Ky.
     Man Of Mine was purchased in 2003 as a Youth 11 & Under mount for Marina Barclay, daughter of Eddie Barclay of South Fulton, Tenn. In 2003, the team began their long career together with a reserve at the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival and followed it up with a blue ribbon at the Chester County Lions Club Horse Show. The team has earned many blues throughout the years with numerous ribbons won at the Celebration. This year the beloved horse was shown five times with four blue ribbons. Man Of Mine and Barclay began this season with a blue in the Youth 12-17 at the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival, followed by blues at the Billy M. Cary Memorial, Savannah Lions Club and the Chester County Lions Club.
     This horse will be greatly missed by all who knew him and especially Marina and the Barclay family.
