Halo De Carolina

Halo De Carolina- 1994-2012 “Halo” was the first broodmare purchased for the breeding program at Centerline Sport Horses INC and our original foundation mare. Halo stood at an impressive 16.3 hands with a fiery red coat and lots of chrome, it was impossible to not notice this beautiful flashy mare. Halo was registered Selle Francias with the NASFA, she was also approved and in the Main Mare book for the ISR Oldenburg NA. Halo possessed beautiful correct conformation, an elegant head and neck with excellent substance and bone. She had three outstanding gaits. A big, relaxed “Marilyn Monroe” walk. A huge, expressive trot, and a quality, balanced canter, all qualities we strive for at Centerline Sport Horses. Halo’s sire, Quick Du Rouet was a successful FEI dressage horse and producer. He carried a talented rider to the FEI Young Rider Championships in dressage and retired to become a foundation stallion at 3H Equestrain Center. As his daughter Halo possessed many of the qualities that made him such a successful dressage mount. Halo was a kind and loving mother, and a joy to have as part of the family. She immediately proved herself as a producer of talented, quality sport horses and proved to be a fantastic cross for Arabian stallions. Her offspring achieved many accomplishments and continue to do so. Her offspring and their success include 2 Regional Champions, 2 Regional Reserve Champions, 3 Regional Top 5’s, 1 National Top Ten winner, 1 ISR Old. NA Premium and One Star Mare-

Halo was retired to live out her days in peace and comfort in 2009 after she gave us the beautiful filly Khahpur’s Fanci. She lived in a beautiful field with her mares and her “husband” Rocky for 3 healthy happy years. In late 2012 Halo’s condition began to worsen. Upon veterinary examination we came to the heartbreaking decision to put her to rest and let her end her days with as little suffering as possible. Halo is buried on the hill in the mare field, where we often were blessed to gaze out and see her and her pasture mates grazing in the sun. She lives on through her sons and daughters, and in our hearts.

If it should be that I grow weak

And pain should keep me from my sleep;

Then you must do what must be done,

For this last battle can’t be won.

You will be sad, I understand;

But don’t let grief then stay your hand.

For this day more than all the rest, Your love for me must stand the test.

We’ve had so many happy years; What is to come can hold no fears.

You don’t want me to suffer so

The time has come, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they’ll tend,

But please stay with me ’til the end

To hold me close and speak to me

Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree,

It was a kindness done for me.

Although my tail its last has waved,

From pain and suffering I’m saved.

Please do not grieve that it was you

Who had this painful thing to do.

We’ve been so close, we two, these years;

Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
