First horse I ever had was an ex-racer TB mare. She was real pretty, stood about 16-1/2 hands high and had a gentle naure but plenty of spirit when I asked it of her.
She was the best horse that I've ever had...... Loved people, liked being washed, petted, being rode and if the curtains was pulled, would sometimes look though our patio door to watch TV. She was a good swimmer, didn't get spooky in the woods and liked going for rides in her trailer. All you had to do to load her was open the end-gate so's she could get in.
She was also fast. Real fast. In fact, the fastest dern horse that I ever been on.
I had her for quite a few years. She threw her last colt when she was close to 15 years old and afterwards, never fully recovered back to her old self. I sold her a year or so later.....to a lady over in the next county whom I knew would give her a good home.
Between my wife and I, we've had close to a dozen since then and currently own two. They've (mostly)all been good horses in their own right...But given the chance, I'd trade them all today....for just one more like her.
At my age, that would be the last one I'd ever need.
