Ned was born in Moncton on March 7, 1944. As a teenager he worked at Joe’s Ponies on Scoudouc Road, and for 19 years following owned and operated Brookdale Stables, forming many lifelong friendships. In 1978, Ned and Sharon founded Dawnshay Dairy Farm, which they ran for 24 years. Ned was passionate about farming, horses, and the beautiful, simple things in life, including sleigh rides in the winter, plowing the fields in fall, long horseback rides in any season, and the sweet smell of fresh-cut hay. He was one of the lucky people who loved his work, and he loved sharing that life with family and friends. Ned also enjoyed visits and sharing memories with his friends and family, who meant so much to him.
A special thank you to Extramural Shediac, and especially to Marten Turmel and Dr. Marcel Mallet.
