    Hi ya from Tn !

    Hello all...

    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.


    Beth

    Hi there. I have been around alot of racing horses and ex racers. Own a thoroughbred/quarter horse myself. I will worn you about the most important thing. Please be very careful-- once a racer, always wanting to race. Another words, when a horse is trained to run on a track--that is it--it only run and run fast in a straight line. I don't know how much they have been rode since then as a pleasure horse, but it is not much, they are not good with knowing how to rein or mostly to stop. And being that they have the blood of a Thoroughbred---they have that heart to run, so if you ever get them running or if someone else that you are riding with starts running, (BEWARE) your horse will want to join in and run too and that is when you may have a runaway on your hands. You can write me for more help if you want--I,m new to this forum so I don't know if you can contact me here or not, so you can email me at debspirittenn@yahoo.com
