here's my OTTB Ice, he had only been off the track for a year when I bought him in July.

He was actually skinny, in that pic you can SLIGHTLY see his ribs, but the picture facing the left made him look emaciated.

A month later, and his coat looked soooo much better!

Almost 3 months later, and you can still kind of see those ribs on his right side.....

aaand him under saddle. This was before the "come to jesus" meeting, so I'm telling him "WALK"

I need to take more pictures of his fuzziness, but I haven't ever remembered to bring my camera out to the barn :(

Valid Diablo, more commonly known as Freddy. <33 Me and my sister lease him. He came off track because of an injury, and he was actually a successful racehorse for some time. He was born in Florida, and when he was pulled off track he was sold to another farm where he was neglected. His current owner picked him up for $1800; he was terribly thin, with horrible feet, a bone spur in his front leg, and with a note from a vet who thought he would never be ridden past a walk.
Well, needless to say, he's come a very long way.

Everyone has such beautiful horses..
Here are my two TB's Both were trained to run but never did. Tiny the first one is almost 9. He has joint issues so I do not ride him at the moment. Next is my new mare Candi. She is 4 1/2 and I recently sent her out for training. Both horses were bred and raised by my Dad.
Since the gal in the first pic with Candi can't work horses at the moment I sent her someplace else. He starts them all n a western saddle.
I love my TB's...<3 <3 <3 them...

My boy Shea, 8yo gelding. Raced 2-3 times, had a bit of retraining and then pretty much sat in a paddock before I got him. I have now had him for almost 2 years.

Day I brought him home:
