It is a amazing story re: the fire and recovery.

But he isn't the first TB to be pulled off the meat truck to head to the Olympics. Some have even won gold.....

Great video! If War Horse didn't break me, I'm not surprised this one didn't either

It was a touching story, but I didn't cry. Glad he got that horse out of the fire! Many more aren't so lucky.

12 is nowhere near past his prime! Infact he is well and truely IN his prime. I would hazard to guess tht the vast majority of olympic horses are at least 10

Sadly there is no chance with the eye candy, his wife is rather beautiful and a very serious rider herself.

Boyd & Silva Martin

Besides if there was a chance, I get first dibs as he's only up the road from me.
Although he does jumping lessons for a very reasonable $100 an hour. When I get a trailer I plan to travel to him once in a while for a lesson.
