Kirklin, Indiana ::: June 27, 2009

The man driving this team is my father and I am so proud and happy for him. After over 40 years, he is finally getting to pursue his dream of pulling again. The past few years have been filled with many obstacles, but I am so proud of him for what he is accomplishing. With his brother and son as his hitchers, the Kirlin Horse Pull made his dream a reality - the beginning of what I know are many years ahead of him living his passion. I know I am biased, but I truly think he is the most respectable and wonderful man I know. He is a friend to everyone he meets and I am truly blessed to call him my father. It was also a moving evening to have his closest friends and family there to support him. And, finally we all had the opportunity to watch Rex, the loved and encouraged horse to the right, in action. Congrats Dad on a job well done!
