     Deloit Wolfe, 79, long-time partner of a buckskin mare mule named “Horse,” died May 23, 2010 at home in Missoula , Montana , from complications with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

     Deloit and Horse, along with three other members of “Team Mule,” won the prestigious Telus Battle of the Breeds in 2008 against 13 horse breeds at Spruce Meadows Masters, Calgary , AB , Canada . The pair had been a part of Team Mule for nine years previous to the big win.

     Recently, Wolfe was able to take part in carving a likeness of Horse for the Carousel for Missoula , done in memory of his daughter Shoeni, who died in 2005. Even though Deloit, a retired orthodontist, had never carved before, his devotion to the project helped create a perfect likeness of Horse.  

     The carousel’s newest addition was dedicated May 28 in a private gathering that honored the lives of both Deloit and Shoeni.

     Deloit is survived by his wife of 42 years, Twila. Horse is now settled in at their son’s home in Washington .
