It was a rare privilege to have a person like Carl in our lives and to be able to consider him a friend. We are eternally grateful for his support and guidance and will cherish the many memories we have of working and racing together. He was an outstanding farrier and an outstanding person. His hard work and devotion to his craft, his horses and his family were remarkable. Beverley will be eternally grateful for all of his support in the early years of her training career.
