From what I have researched, she went through a meat auction once where her previous owner purchased her. She had been badly injured at one time. My vet says she broke her pelvis, and quite possibly fractured her vertebrae. Imagine, carrying ill seated tourists on a bad back through state forest trails.
I have talked to the owner who had her in the beginning, and I know where I bought her, but I am working on a book and I am trying to find out the middle of her story. Here is what I do know. Her registered name is Larry's Lassie, she is from (and raced at) the Finger Lakes region of New York. She is 16, bay, and the sweetest mare in the world. She knows the name Midnight. My guess is she went through the auction in Sugarcreek Ohio. If anyone knows any small tidbit of her past, please contact me. Fate placed this mare in my hands, it is meant to be that I tell her story.
Thank you all. -M
