I adopted him in 2008; he's an 11 y/o OTTB. He was imported as a yearling from Argentina. His daddy is one of the leading sires there. He raced at Gulf Stream, Acqueduct, Calder, and Canterbury. He had an accident and had a sesamoid fracture that healed after surgery (he has a pin holding it). The owners were going to race him again...after the vet wouldn't clear him to be ran the owners wanted him put down. HOWEVER, the vet must have seen something special in him because he couldn't do it and hid him in another barn until the rescue could come pick him up :) If I ever met the man I think I would give him a the bigeest hug of my life!!!!
He is the sweetest boy EVER. His hobbies include, eating, sleeping, dunking, rolling, and making sure there is no section of clean shavings in the stall in the morning.
His personality is amazing. There were many people who looked him at the rescue (as he was there for 2 years) before I came and the owner of the rescue said I was the only one who he had ever shown any interest in. He stopped eating hay and came over to me and rested his head on my shoulder for about 10 minutes. It was love.
I defied the rule - 1st and only horse I ever looked at <3
I am truly blessed to know what a true horse/human connection is like. I don't think you come across that everyday.
Thanks for reading...I must stop or I'll start to cry!!!
A woman needs two animals - the horse of her dreams and a jackass to pay for it.
