FAREWELL TO A LOYAL STEED

South Boston News
Midnight, a 27-year-old Percheron belonging to Weldon and Brenda Ramsey of Buffalo Junction, died Tuesday after many years as a community fixture — pulling Santa’s sled in the Clarksville Christmas Parade for some two decades, showing guests around downtown Clarksville with horse-drawn carriage rides during Holiday Open House, and bringing charm and trademark high spirits to weddings, proms and other events over nearly three decades. The Ramseys, owners of B&W Carriage, bought the horse when he was only about three or four years old, keeping Midnight on their farm with more than a dozen other horses. Midnight’s “heart was as big as his body,” said Mrs. Ramsey in mourning the passing of the family’s favorite draft horse. “Midnight loved getting his bells and finery on at Christmas because he knew it meant he was going to work to make people happy. Good-bye Midnight, you will be well remembered as the dapper, gentle soul you were,” the Ramseys wrote on social media. Above, Midnight leads a wedding carriage ride across Kerr Lake.
