Hi, I have 3 Thoroughbreds. My stallion is Uncle Rocco and he is a stakes winner by Robyn Dancer(who set a new world record of 1:27 for 7.5 furlongs at Hollywood Park). I also have a Thoroughbred mare in foal to him and a yearling filly by a different horse she was in foal to when I bought her. I also have a 33 year old mare that I bought from the local horse auction many years ago who was part of a herd of starving horses. Also have 2 pensioned beef cows,dogs, and a cat. I used to raise cattle but after reading about cruelty at slaughterhouses decided to quit raising them and became a vegetarian. Close confinement and cruelty in hog barns turned me off of pork years ago. I have had or raised many different animals and I worked in a pet shop as a teenager and after that I was a dog groomer until I moved to Virginia. I do not ride anymore. I started riding with one hour group trail rides with a leader when I was a child and did not have any lessons until I was 21.
