I didn't think I really cared for thoroughbreds (I worked with someone about ten years ago who told me how she drugged her filly to make her calm enough to sell and that soured me to the breed) till I met Gus. It was love at first sight . For my kids too. He was so sweet and spunky (even though he's 22) and interested in us (well, at least in our carrots ).





He's skinny and needs some TLC, but hopefully he'll be officially ours and home in a few weeks .

Gus...

I am getting my thoroughbred soon. He is an ex race horse, and he is big but gentle and goofy. Though I have not yet received him, I am waiting for him to arrive and can't wait to find out just what it is that makes him special!

HowClever, I have actually seen a thoroughbred the colour of yours before. I'm used to seeing the darker grey one's with a dark mane, not such a light grey with a light mane like Rex....WOW

Sorry, I just had to meantion that. Very pretty...

I love TBs. Such fabulous event horses when they put their mind to it!

My first horse was a TB. He had great bloodlines (his grandsire was Northern Dancer). He looked exactly like a warmblood and did amazing at hunters (was too slow for the track). He had a huge gate but a very slow canter unless you rode with a whip. Whenever you would go to pet his face he would stick out his touge so you could play with it lol.
