Breed Thoroughbred

Age 10

Sex Gelding

Color Grey

Height 16hh

Soon after starting a veterinary position at the racetrack, I fell in love with a big grey horse. I loved watching his exercise rider walk him back to the barn from the track with a loose rein, allowing him to eat grass along the way. When his trainer informed me it was time to retire the un-raced 5-year-old colt, I happily took him home. He has given me the most thrilling rides including gallops and swimming at the beach. I even rode him in my wedding!

Every horse has the right to a good home, we need to help horses in transition find a good home. Adoption programs need to be diligent and use all the resources available to match suitable (right) horses with a potential owner. This will ensure the best long-term outcome for horse and rider/owner.

She is so much a part of my life that I cannot imagine not having her. I give credit to the Lord for leading me to her that hot summer day in 2015. I have trained a lot of good horses over the past six decades, but I have to say that I am as proud of this mare as any horse I ever dealt with.

I often catch Maddie in the pasture with Moxie just talking to him and hugging on him. I would love to know what all they talk about. He attentively listens to her and seems to love her hugs.

The volunteers constantly asked “When are you taking him home?” Finally, the day came for me to move on to start my own business. As soon as that decision had been made, so had another. I couldn’t leave him behind. In the two years of being there, our bond was undeniable and unique.
