100+ Thoroughbreds


  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?

Cryptorchid gelding, also hock chip. But FREE, and gorgeous and only 3.  With some investment could be fabulous horse. Extremely well bred.

  5. The Old Forester chestnut! I feel like he certainly sires 'a type' - there always seem to be a few of that breeding at the track that I'm wishing were mine.
