Haha, he's not that white at the moment though, too hot for him to be rugged, but it rains and he rolls, haha.
I think the best thing is that when his is freshly bathed he actually has chestnut coloured flea-bites, not many, but they're there.

Yeah, when I saw your heading "Gus..." I had to do a double take. And then I'm reading how he's an OTTB, and I'm thinking to myself, "no, Gus never raced, he doesn't have a lip tattoo." Man I must have been too tired to be reading HF when I saw your post .

LOL. Stoeka also had a few chestnut flea bites on her. Strange...

generally speaking, *I* don't like TBs. Too much energy for my blood, at least the OTTB. Wife's got one of them and he's still in the "all I wanna do is run" stage...

Not my OTTB, spence.

He couldn't cut it as a race horse because his whole philosophy on life is, "Why run when I can trot, and why trot if I can walk?"

JJ's only 6 y/o, which means he's going to get even more laid back the older he gets. He's completely convinced that 'standing still' is a gait.

I WISH YANKEE WAS LIKE THAT!!! He ran something like 28 times, didn't earn much, and was hardly in the money. But he's still **** fast, faster than I ever want to go on a horse, and got too much energy. But the best thing that the wife EVER did was take him off grain and feed him only grass/hay, beet pulp, and alfalfa cubes. I could tell a massive DROP in energy within a week... much nicer to work with!

- that would be our Aero, too.

(still one of my favorite pics of DD and Aero)




This one sums up Aero's personality and attitude perfectly.

Mac, what a lovely boy!

Spence, race horses are fed high energy rocket fuel, so when you take them off it they do tend to have a downturn in energy.

I have JJ on Blue Seal Charger right now because he lost some weight at the trainer's and I want him to regain it. Hasn't really affected his energy level, except that occasionally he'll trot with the two Arabians when they're being snorty and racing around.

He doesn't do it as long as they do, though. There's grass to be eaten!
