    Taking on a ex-race horse

    Well. Title says it all. Within the next month and a half to two months we will be taking on a ex race horse. So many requirements to adopt one. It's crazy. But understandable. Now to start piecing together everything. I will admit. I'm crazy excited though. Anybody else do this? And want to share there experience.

    Have had a couple off the track horses. They are a handfull. All I can say is stay sharp on your toes and always be ready for the unexpected. Oh, and oh how they can eat. ALOT!

    Re: Taking on a ex-race horse

    The one I'm after has been off the track for 7 months. Has been reconditioned. So her metabolism isn't crazy anymore. She's a 09 mare. They give her 2 flakes of hay and a scoop of feed toe times a day and she looks pretty good. Little bay mare. Has the sweetest eyes. Pretty nice under saddle. You actually have to use leg to get her to go. But we will be doing a lot of ground work and she will be learning how down-under horsemanship works. And then switching to a western saddle. I've got my hands full. Guess its a good thing I am almost always home. Lol

    I'm not one prone to mares. But I haven't gotten her off my mind since I laid eyes on her.

    Definitely keep us updated and post pics!

    Mares are, an acquired taste. Like dark chocolate. My QH mare is definitely a handful, but I look forward to the day that I will get to bring her with me.

    Pics Pics! I love bays!
