Jumping right in here. I am a fairly new horse owner who is fornunate enough to have great "horse people" friends. I am getting two TB's that are amazing. Very sweet, very gentle, very considerate and bonded to each other. They are half sisters who started off on the track at the Derby but didn't win any races and were used as brood mares. They have some impressive lines with their sire Alleged, great, great grandsire War Adrimal and great, great, great grandsire was Man O War.
I have spent the last year helping my sister bring back a starved and neglected Arabian who was on her way to be slaughtered. She isn't totally up to par yet but getting there very slowly.
I've been reading for past year everything I can on horse care and I have been lurking here a while. Any tips would be most appreciated.
