Yeah, I personally don't own one, I always thought they were all nuts but then I started working here and it changed my mind. We recently just brought in a horse that was in the kill pen, the only reason why we did was because we adopted him out two years ago. When we got him he was in horrible shape, with cuts all over his eyes, body, and legs. D; He still had the auction number on his butt as well.
I am IN LOVE with Courage. He looks so much like my old OTTB Buck's Chili aka Chili Bean. He was terrible when my trainer first got him but turned into a complete cuddle bug that kids could ride once he realized people could be trusted.
Oh my goodness, I just looked at your NC chapter and Irish...drool. My husband would be furious!
