He’s a Horse Again

Pop quiz: you’re a Thoroughbred racehorse. You’re five years old. You started racing in the late summer of your two-year-old year. When was the last time you were turned out with other horses?

Yeah. Good question, huh?

The yearlings are thrilled; they were missing their two-year-old sisters, who are off in Ocala learning to be racehorses themselves. And Final Call seems pretty happy, too. It’s really rewarding to see him out moseying with his new little brother and sister.

This is living!

More to come. Suffice it to say that teaching a horse to learn as a horse again, is key to the re-training process. . .

  2. Look at him being a baby with the babies! I love it when it “clicks” and they figure out the whole herd dynamics thing.

  3. Awwww, too cute, the chestnut colt is giggling…
