We say goodbye to one of our Equine Dreams Family Members today. William(Bill) or (SOB) (Sweet ol Bill as he signed his notes), Johnson passed away at home with loved ones yesterday.
For those of you who didn't know Bill he was a true cowboy. He loved and respected people and horses and they gave the same back.
Bill guided Equine Dreams as Board President with passion for the mission, and taught us many things over the last 18 years.
In particular he taught us all to be tough, have some fun and make a difference. We will always hear him ....
"Stand up for yourself and work for what you want." "No fear." "No whining." "No excuses." "No laziness." "Change the world by being responsible to what you have, and thankful to God for it!" "It's a long way from the heart so get going." If he claimed "all guts no brains" you set a new course.
Bill was special and will live on forever in our hearts. We've worked with many horse professionals over the years but none with the spirit, talent, guts, brains, compassion, empathy, tenacity and skill of this Horseman.
Bill would say "If you ever question yourself look them in the eye, there's your answer" and "If your horse doesn't like them get rid of them."
His wisdom lives on.
Goodbye Bill we will miss you! We will never forget you. Care for our herd waiting for you. Until we meet again, Your Equine Dreams Family
