Icy spent the night in the stall and cleaned up every bite of hay. I put him back in the same pasture this morning and put Coin in with him. They said hello and started eating grass like they’d been best friends forever. It was so nice. Thanks for helping get him to us (and…

Cortableau Gets a Mom!

Sep 4, 2009

Cortableau spent a few days of well earned R&R at the Bits & Bytes Farm “Spa” where he received laser treatments, stretching exercises and lunging. He learned to eat grass and run free again! And he chilled with the other ex-racers on the farm who, we’re sure, told him that his racing days were over. Stevie Loverboy chatted with “Bleau” over the fence, “There’s no track here. These people are nice.” By the time his new mom Laura arrived on Friday he was feeling good and ready to meet his new family.

Bato Loco is Crazy for his New Home and Friends

Sep 24, 2008

Loco spent two hours in the pasture this morning. He loved it. He made some friends and did a lot of exploring. He followed me like a puppy. When I walked him to the round pen, he was relaxed: his head was nice and low, he walked at an easy, slow pace just behind my…
