Rosehanna Finds a Home



Yesterday, I received word that this lovely lady, Rosehanna, had been purchased off of our Trainer's Listing. I am so happy. She had a couple of strikes against her because she is a mare (most people want geldings) and she is older (eight years, but that's old in the world of race horses). She will be going down to Kentucky, land of the lovely Bluegrass, to become a broodmare, and will be producing lovely appendix quarter horse babies. Just think, to never again see the backside of a race track! And, to have a new and loving home. How lucky can a girl get?

That's great news!! May she live the rest of her life in peace, with lots of food, love and respect. And to never know what a kill lot is. Enjoy the lush green pastures Rosehanna.

What a beauty! I am always happy when a horse that "served" out his/her expectancy gets another chance at a real life.

Always thrilled to hear about a horse (or any animal) find good care.

Can you imagine how beautiful she will look in the bluegrass of Kentucky. And her foals will be so pretty. I'm so happy for her.

I thought of you Louise when I drove through Lexington Kentucky and saw all the beautiful horses grazing--I'm glad Rosehanna will be joining them! I guess you know that the World Equestrian Games is going to be there in late September.
