I Love My Job (with pics)

I have to say, I do love my job. I get to spend all day with my horses (well most of them, 2 of them live at my home, and a select few when they are off of racing and getting turned out) I thought maybe some people would like to see some pics of what I do every day, from MY angle I think its neat when you have never driven a horse before to see it from this angle.

Here I am jogging in the inside track, which is where the horses towing and bad behaved horses jog. Its 1/4 of a mile, and you can see the track around the outside of it, that's the track we race on, its 1/2 mile.

This is my 5yr old pacing mare, Prairie Debutante




And this is our 5yr old trotting mare, Celebrity Mistress, towing. All they wear out is a halter and a lead with the chain over their nose. Don't mind my goofy little cousin, I usually take them alone, but if I did that, I couldnt take pics!

buffalo/batavia mostly. Sometimes vernon. Im telling you, these tracks are terrible!!! Last month at the batavia meet we had 7 horses (including one of ours) break down. All were coffin bone breaks. Theres so many holes in buffalo and they can't fix them because the maintenence crew knows nothing about tracks! And the first turn at buffalo is a doozie!

Batavia is a little better since last meet. They resufaced it and banked the turns, the only problem is the new surface is loose and breaking away a lot and they can't get it to pack down

It's a bonus to get paid to do what you love.

That sucks about the tracks you have to race on. I feel so lucky to race where I do - the facilities are wonderfull and well maintained. Sorry to hear about one of yours breaking down. I've been full time racing for 5 years and have yet to have one break down or go down - Thank goodness!
