No I wasn't the original breeder. She came to me as a 16yr.old. She went on from her poor racing career to be a fantastic jumper. And when turned out to play would just breeze and breeze. Loves to run, but as you know didn't and doesn't have the speed.
We love her. I don't know if it was the way she was raised, but she has never become an affection horse. Pretty much, put the hay there, clean my corral, make sure my water is cleaned and filled, and I'll take a few apples and carrots as soon as you have time. The only way I know that she truly loves me, is she's saved my butt over jumps a number of times. Caught me on her neck, before I could finish my free fall.
