Ah, my dream. A farm with 100+ Thoroughbreds all mine. Just kidding, I wouldn't have enough time to love them all but it's nice to visit a place like this. My friend Katie had to do a pick up of a sales mare at a Thoroughbred breeding and boarding facility a few hours away. Having been basically stuck at home for most of the winter I of course jumped at the chance for a road trip to see all the Thoroughbreds!
There were babies, weanlings, yearlings, 2 year olds, 3 year olds, boarders, stallions, broodmares....over 100 Thoroughbreds. The ones I wanted were all in the $25,000 and up category so, I guess I have champagne taste on a beer budget. I'll wait until they are done racing and need a home, thanks.
I just wanted to share the pictures to hopefully brighten your day this winter of shit weather. Which ones do you like?
