Two new rescues, Off track Thoroughbred boys.

We got two very sweet boys in last week. They are both off track Thoroughbreds, half brothers. Spirit is 17hh and 7 years old - Zealous 16.2hh and 5 years old this spring. Once they are up to weight, fat and happy I will be re-training them for English, Dressage, possible Jumping. They are such sweethearts, well mannered and quiet, we just love them!

Spirit, First Day:

Zealous, First Day:

Five days later all cleaned up....


Boy do they eat! Hopefully they'll pick up weight quickly
They have excellent personality's & manners, Perfect gentlemen for the farrier and vet check.

Awwww, such sweet faces!! Glad you got them! Makes me sad to see any horse that skinny!

They are really beautiful. Im so happy that they are being taken care of, your doing a good job.

They are both really cute. I am glad to see that they have such a good owner.
Some OTTB's can just be so sweet. Mine has the greatest personality and I was happy to find him. He was not nearly as skinny as your two, but he was thin. Its been only a few months and he is already improving a lot. He will hopefully be muscular and completely filled out before Summer.

Congrats! :)

Good for you. Feel so bad for those poor guys. I never cease to wonder how someone can let a pair of poor animals starve and be able to go to bed and sleep at night.
Good for you. I think you should have a pair of lovely horses in your hands once their training is on the go. Make sure to keep us posted, looking forwards to seeing how they progress:)

It's great that you rescued these terrific horses. Good luck and may you have many happy years with them!

Awww they're adorable... once they've got the weight on them, they're going to be stunners. Congrats on your new horses, they're so lucky to have a nice owner as yourself to help them get fat and happy!

I love off the trackers. With weight, they'll be awsome.

Such sweet faces.
