My OTTB mare. The vet estimated that she is about 20 years old. She came to us 3 months after being rescued and she was about 200 pounds under weight when we got her. She needed her teeth floated ASAP. She had huge holes in the sides of her month from where her teeth rubbed. She also had rain rot. I believe she had a pretty bad spill because her back legs are covered with long scars. Anyways, she is now enjoying the retired life and living her days out as a pasture horsey.
@LuckyDragon: If you didn't know, Winsome and Grace are half-siblings.
@LoveYourHorse: I tried to look yours up, but apparently your TBs aren't registered (at least not in the US - the sites I use is an official site where all TBs are registered, whether or not they raced).
@Hedgie: Not sure if you're aware, but usually places will just use the horse's registered name as a show name. It's kind of ridiculous for a horse to have three names, I guess XD
Anyway, my Reno (yep, that's his registered JC name). Photos are in order of the caption:
1-3: First day I went to meet Reno at the foster farm. 3rd picture he's being "hugged" by his cousin Deck Chair.
4-5: Winter in his new home with me. 5th he's with his best friend Toga Race/Toga/Oberon (he moved away earlier this year)
6-7: Spring/summer/now. He's my pretty boy.
Winsome, Graceful Victory, and two others I currently own, as well as two I have sold, and one I'm going to get (not to mention others I know) are all out of the same stallion - Win Lose or Draw. The other two that I have are not full TB, but they are full siblings (out of an Appendix mare). Lucky and Victory have the same dam. Lucky is a half brother to my mom's two (all three out of a diff stallion - Nice Krews). Lucky's half brother, Strawbug (Appendix) is a full brother to the dam of my other two full siblings. :) To make it more confusing, I know Lucky's full sister, Blushing Flower, and am going to be getting a filly out of her and Win Lose or Draw. All of my horses are from the same breeder in ND :)
I have 1 TB. He's an 18 yr old gelding (was a stallion until last year!) LOVE HIM. He is my 10 yr old daughters horse....he will try his best to do anything she asks him to do. I have his full story, as far as we know it anyway, on my profile. This pic is my daughter and Cy at the Rodeo Jr Princess Contest.
