I unfortunately just gave my young mare to my uncle. She had conformational problems that weren't going to fix as she got older (she's only 3 and a draft cross) and would thus make her unable to jump competitively like I was hoping when I bought her as a baby :( Hard decision but I figured it would be better to give her to family for free rather than a stranger at a price and who's to say she wouldn't end up in crummy circumstances eventually? At least I know where she will live out her years and be a great trail horse (plus I can visit her).
I'm considering a retrained OTTB for my next horse. I've looked at a couple rescues with Thoroughbreds that have already started their new careers. I was just wondering what people's opinions are of retrained OTTBs?
