Haha. About the Sam thing, I don't know of any couples, but there are the brothers Sam and Dean from Supernatural. And Dean was named after his grandmother. But 'Angel' fits her description, in my opinion :)
Oh my goodness, I am so happy that you got her. I too thought she was a beautiful girl and at first, didn't even notice the eye. I can't wait to hear how she does for you. I could care less what others think about Camelot, I am glad you saved her. I will continue to hope that all the horses find good homes.
You know the rescue saying "saving one horse doesn't change the world but it does change the world for that one horse." Good for you for changing her world.
Inga, I love having and being around the horses that no one else wanted. I've been able to work with some absolute gems because of it. I'm hoping this girl will turn out just as great as the others after some good food and love.
Oooh she's an OTTB! Camelot didn't have it listed that she's tattooed. One of their volunteers just sent me a message about her saying this:
Thank you for bailing 715 at Camelot...I am the one that they have ID the tats and try to make contact with past racing contacts...you beat me to Id'ing her but I played with her tat photo and figured out who she was just to tell you Her registered name is Llanura, she is Pa bred, DOB 5/19/03, by Lord At War out of Porcelana by Czaravich), 36 starts 4-4-10, $56,515, last raced 3/1/08 at Penn Nat..no registered tb foals
So her granddam on her sire's side and grandsire on her dam's side have Northern Dancer in them, making her cousins with my old guy. Her granddam on her dam's side goes straight back to Hoist The Flag.. so that means War Admiral and Man O War. Pretty nifty :)
