The Kent Family was very sorry to hear of the passing of Noble Iceman. This sad news came as a great shock and disappointment. Horses like him do not come around often. He was one of the finest results of over 30 years of breeding. He was an example of the pride and vision that go into producing quality Arabians. I myself have never been so captivated by one individual horse, both by his beauty and also his mental and physical talent. He was an inspiration to me as a young trainer. He gave me something to look forward to each day and something to take pride in. And now, though we acknowledge that we can never fully replace Iceman, the dream of producing more horses like him is what drives us forward. Our hearts go out to the Golestani family, for we know that they too have suffered a great loss. Not only those who have been involved with Iceman, but also the Arabian breed will miss this great stallion. It was a privilege to be a part of his life and I am grateful that he was a part of mine.
