    I am a physician,who in my younger years enjoyed breeding and racing horses. I have owned one of Mr. Lennberg’s carvings “a Great Day for the Race”for over 30 years. It gives me joy in so many ways. This evening I looked over to the carving and strangely scanned the web to learn of Mr.Lennberg’s passing.My sorrow is expressed to the family but remind them his work remains a joy for those who fortunately have them.
