Sends Heartfelt Condolences on Passing of My Final Notice

January 29th, 2016 6:06 PM | 7 Comments is extremely saddened to learn of the tragic passing of My Final Notice and sends heartfelt sympathies to Cindy McGraw and everyone involved with this beautiful grandson of Dynamic Deluxe.

Below is the official statement from Riverside Ranch: 

Tears are falling at Riverside Ranch for the loss of the Stoic stallion “My Final Notice” aka Carson.

Carson was a World Champion Producer, Congress Champion Producer, Superior Producer, National Leaders List Producer

For Cindy, the dream started in Sultan, Washington with the grand sire of “My Final Notice”, the legendary stallion “Dynamic Deluxe”. She traveled the nation with My Final Notice’s sire Dynamic in the Dark, to become the NSBA leading limited rider with the stallion being the leading two year old in the Nation that year. Carson was shown and won many titles with Stephen Stephens on board. My Final Notice was a third generation of Dynamic Deluxe a very heartfelt and important bloodline to Cindy.  

On January 27th, it only took Carson laying down for Cindy to become concerned as Carson would rarely lay down.  After an initial veterinary on farm call and treatment it was decided within that hour to take Carson to a surgery center for a closer evaluation.  After palpation’s, ultrasounds and belling tapping the veterinarians could find no reason for the pain to be increasing the way it was.  During the exploratory colic surgery a Enteroliths stone was located and severely stuck in the small intestines.  After many hours and extreme efforts it was not able to be relocated and thus being close to the attachment of the body was not able to be removed.  Cindy held his head and stroked over his eye until he was gone. Donnie and Cindy McCraw as well as the entire Riverside Ranch family will miss him greatly.

  1. I am stunned over the loss of Carson. I am so very sorry for all of you. We love these animals more than our own lives.

  2. Truly heart broken over the loss of this magnificent stallion

  3. My condolences to riverside ranch on their loss. He was very pretty and will be missed by many

  4. My jaw is on the floor. I cannot believe they have suffered another tragic loss. Dynamic In The Dark was taken way too soon and now My Final Notice. I have a son of Dynamic In The Dark and I have always said my next would be by MFN. They are truly special animals. Maybe just too special for this world. Bless him and you all and find comfort that all that DD preciousness lives on in all the beautiful babies out there and in all of those that have loved them!

  5. I own two geldings that are great grandsons of Dynamic Deluxe. Of course they are grandsons to Dynamic in the Dark. The stud was a half brother to My Final Notice. He of course not as famous as MFN but the blood flows in my geldings of DD and DITD! I am so proud of that and grieve for you for the loss of such a wonderful beautiful talented stallion! We sure do not understand these things and probably never will. He was blessed to be owned and loved by Riverside Ranch, Cindy and family. RIP beautiful Carson. Prayers for everyone left behind…He sure will be remembered….

  6. I am deeply saddened to hear about Carson. He was absolutely stunning. Prayers to all during this time. Wish I would have been able to use his breeding last year to my blue roan. R.I.P. dear Carson.

  7. I’m sorry to hear about your marvelous horse passing away..cour
