This is a picture Morgan took of the ranch behind our house. The ranch was originally called Preshana and had been around for many, many years, but was later bought and renamed Aspen Equestrian Ranch. As per the Post Independence, “Preshana in the late 1970s and ’80s, was a facility for horse-boarding, equestrian events and polo. . When our family moved into the neighborhood called Aspen Equestrian Estates we boarded Morgan’s horse TC at that ranch. You can see TC (the brown & white Paint horse) on the left side of the photo.
Morgan was so happy that TC was so close and loved to walk down the street to go be with her horse. After Morgan’s murder TC was never the same. He knew she was gone, he loved her and I believe he knows who was involved, lucky for them horses can’t talk, or can they? About 2 months after Morgan’s murder I woke up one morning after a horrible dream about TC – the dream left me with a feeling that he was in danger and I had to move him FAST. So I did – I was able to move him to another ranch only a couple of hours after I woke from that awful dream. I was able to breath a sigh of relief. Morgan loved that horse – she used to say she felt like he was her little brother. Kind of strange considering he was a 1,200 lb horse.
Then sometime after that the ranch was bulldozed down to the ground. Strange – right? It’s being used as polo grounds again, which is good I guess, but I still have to wonder if the razing of the ranch had anything to do with the fact that the equine amitriptyline that killed Morgan most likely came from that ranch. Just some more food for thought.
