Hooray for a Chestnut thread! This is my 8 year old OTTB (off the track Thoroughbred) gelding. JC name is "Bait and Switch" and we call him "LT" as a barn name (short for Lieutenant which is what my boyfriend is for the Fire Department).
I'm new to this forum, but I just wanted to post a few pictures of my fourteen year old NSH Rosie :] I've only had her for about three months, but I can already tell how blessed I am to belong to this mare!
The first picture is from the day she came. The second is from my senior photos taken in July, and the rest are from her first month with me!
I am lovin' this thread! Look at all these red beauties. So I see a couple of other oldies on here so I'll throw mine in there too. I should have posted him with Rascal on my original post since he's considered chestnut too. He's not as coppery red as Rascal but he's red. He's a 31 year old Tennessee Walker and my 9 year old daughter's pride and joy. He's also Rascal's pasture buddy. When Rascal was given to me, Eb was part of the package. No one wanted him because he was already old then. I had no desire to separate them so he has his forever home with us. So here's Eb, short for Ebeneezer.
;) I love the sorrel/chestnut color. I wanted to call my little ranch red horse ranch, but the name was already taken. Nothing boring about this coat color adn they shine up so pretty from the deepest red to the coppery to the almost dun.
Katja, aren't these old horses such gems !
