We have two ex raser tbs at the barn, Bindenwood or bw and Danny. I love Danny, BW is a chicken.

We got Ginnyfoule (sp?) 2 years ago and they are loud and redicules but when we first got them one came up by the barn by BW's stall and he feeked out. He sweet thrugh his blanket and started pasing so we took off the soaked through heveyer blanket and put on a lighter one. (it was dificult to do without being killed) We left one girl with BW and when to get rid of the Ginnyfoule. When we got back Bw had soaked that one too. We took him out and rubed him down for a bit but it still took him for EVER to calm him down. That was when I first working there. Rideing and being around horses is way diferent. I had been riding for like 7 years but had been working for like a month. It was the first problem I had to deal with and I was so scared that BW was gona break his stall, or his self, or one of us. He had reared in his stall and goten his foot in the water bucket, I was afaid he would break it. Ah the wonders of a psyco TB , but I love um...

I've got a 6yo tb gelding of the track. His previous owners said they's never come across an ottb with such a good nature. He's really quiet, which amazing considering he is so young. I love him to bits!!!
There are pics of him in the photo section, but i'll post some later.

My tb is possum. I love her especially because she is sweet, level headed and very eager to please. And she has talent seeping out of her ears ;)

Im a big fan of tbs because they are so athletic and full of personality. I could go on and on but I wont :) ill just say I think they are one of the best breeds there is :) my next horse is definitely going to be another tb :)

One of the good things about her is that she isnt a finely built type tb. Since those ^^^ pics she's put on more weight and muscle and is turning out to be a nice stocky little tb :)

This is my baby, Chloe =].
She is an 8 yr olfd OTTB. Sweetest thing ever, wouldn't hurt a fly. Very sensitive and looses her brain quickly. Learns things really fast, though. Very light on her feet. Flighty/fast. Loves to please. LOVES attention.

I have two thoroughbreds.

Phinny is the first. He is my main show horse and we ussually show childrens hunter and my age group equ. He is six and was breed to be a race horse but was never raced because he was far too slow and lazy. So, they thought he would make a good hunter. He is a goofball and loves to jump so much. He does not really have a thoroughbred temperment by any means, but that's ok. I have only had him since October, but he is my little baby.

Charm is also a thoroughbred. She is of the track and rather high strung. She is 16 and was previously a hunter, until a recent hip injury, which was career ending. Now she is retired and is a nice little companion horse. I don't have pics of her on this computer, but she is 15.1 hands and bay.

Pretty horses everyone! I've never personally ridden a TB before but way back when my friend boarded his horse a a private home and another boarder there had a big, lanky TB that she called "Cramer" after the Sienfeld character :)
