I love my OTTB! He's a 2003 model, sire is Sunny's Halo, who won the Kentucky Derby in 1983. My Halo however did not pick up his daddy's racing ability.

BUT, he makes a great hunter.
Pretty ribbons
Cross country fun
Pretty pretty hunter boy

Same with my TB!! He's a 1992 Sunny's Halo baby as well.. My guy was not suited for racing either so they never raced him, he's a hunter!

This is Zoey, registered but doesn't have an actual name... She has fairly decent Australian tb blood lines. Sire: High Rolling Dam: Distant Echoes. She was put throw her paces and that was her racing career, no starts nothing. She is a mere 14.3-15hh.

This is my boy, Riley! He's an OTTB, not sure of his racing career, but he is a whiz at dressage, very pretty mover once you get him going. He prefers to be lazy and just be admired.

I thought Ronan was a Warmblood for the longest time.. he's gorgeous, as are all the others! I still can't believe why my instructor always warned me, but then again, I'm sure there are plenty stereotypical TBs out there.

These are two of my boys.
The bay is Nibbler B'stard. (Otherwise known as Hoof Hefner)
He is 16.3hh and was a real handful when I first got him. After many years together and a lot of fun and a lot of trials he is in a new home so I can concentrate on my mare due to foal. I miss him.
The chestnut is the Phantom, a home bred Tb never raced. He was fabulous, loved him to bits. Very very cheeky and beautiful. I had high hopes for this boy - the ridden one is where I just started to school him.
Unfortunately he developed a terrible facial neuralgia and I had to have him put down. Absolutely heart breaking.
Have always loved Tbs having rescued and rehabbed many of them over the years. Now that I am much older, I need smaller horses! But I still love Tbs.

My tub o'lard ex-racer. He'll never be mistaken for a WB, but I've had people ask me if he's an appendix because they can't believe that huge booty belongs to a TB.

15.2 h, and his registered name is JJ's Sneaky Snake.
