Their enjoyment in the horse business brought them a wonderful; group of friends which they enjoyed many good times with. Ed retired in 1977 and began to live life on a more leisurely basis, enjoying his garden, seven children, 12 grandchildren and one great granddaughter. They enjoyed owning and showing such great horses as Copy’s Count Marco, Nightwatch, I’m Finally, Pusher’s Twist About, Pushover’s Infiniti, Altima, and his all time favorite Card Trick.
