He is a 6 yr. Old off tracker, dark dappled gray, related to some of the biggest names in racing, which is fun for a TB owner to find out. Doesn't mean anything, but it is interesting nonetheless.
He is descended from Native/Northern Dancer, His grandsire is Danzig, and on his dam's side he is related to Secretariat, Ribot, and his ancestry is traced all the way back to the Tetrarch through the amazing Mumtaz Mahal.....
He had five starts ....usually coming in in the middle of the pack. So as a racehorse he was not outstanding, just mediocre.
To us he is the most sane, agreeable, friendly excuse for a horse ever!!
How he looked when we bought him a year and a half ago, with a body score of 2:
What a little TLC and FOOD can do:
As you can see, he is very receptive to humans hugging, touching, hanging on him.... he is very human oriented, he does NOT get along with other horses however....
He is my "heart horse", we all just love his funny, quirky, lovable, in our pockets, cuddling ways.... he is a true love bug....more like a dog than a horse.
We love you, Beau!!
