"T" is for thoroughbred! I have two thoroughbreds, both rescued horses. Our first is Gigondas, the big red mare. She never raced. I don't even know her pedigree. We believe she was used as a broodmare, then discarded to a slaughter-bound feedlot. I rescued her off the feedlot and we've had her now for 2 years. Then, there's Quad. Quad is an off-the-track thoroughbred who actually ran in 7 races and never won! He's much too mellow to be a race horse! He's VERY laid back and is a gentle soul, although he did spook one day last week when I was leading him down to the arena. You know...those pesky leaves...the horse-eating ones! A gust of wind came up and scattered the leaves and Quad actually spooked. Not a big one, just enough to let me know he IS a horse, after all! What a character! Sunday Stills Challenge for November 29, 2009. Nope. My computer isn't fixed yet. Fortunately, hubby has some pics on this laptop and I combed through them to find my Sunday Stills Challenge pics for my blogs! THANK YOU, hubby!
