His doctors are still evaluating the full extent of the stroke’s effects and determining George’s best therapeutic options.

Get-well wishes may be mailed to George, c/o Gritman Medical Center, 700 S. Main, Moscow, ID 83843. Or, send e-mails to; that address is for family friend Juli Thorson, who’s offered to print and take e-mails to George while he’s undergoing treatment and recovery.

According to Juli, who’s visited George daily since his hospitalization, he’s showing steady signs of improvement, and responds well to supportive messages from his fellow Appaloosa enthusiasts.
