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 .
