Decorated all-around American Quarter Horse Majestic Scotch, 19, was euthanized February 14. Majestic Scotch is by One Scotch Delight and out of Two Eyed Natches by Two Eyed Punk. He was bred by Donald and Jean Bangasser of Ackley, Iowa.

Owned by Sharnai Thompson of Cornelius, North Carolina, the sorrel gelding had a list of AQHA open, amateur, Select amateur and youth world and reserve world championships longer than your arm.

He had more than $67,000 in National Snaffle Bit Association earnings and more than $55,000 in AQHA world show earnings. “Dickie” and former owner Susan Johns of Paradise Valley, California, won the all-around title at the 2009 Select World Show, where they won western riding, were reserve in western pleasure and fourth in horsemanship.

The gelding also racked up a youth all-around high-point title in 2005, along with his youth AQHA Supreme performance and AQHA Performance champion titles. In 2006, he got his AQHA performance champion title.

“It's with the utmost certainty that I can say I will never again sit on anything as extraordinary as Majestic Scotch,” Sharnai said.

“In 2005, he taught me how to be a winner. In 2006, he taught me how to stay a winner. I've missed him ever since. He was my first, he was my best, and he will always be the one I am most thankful for.  I love you, Dickie.”
