PonyBrat was just trying to be helpful I would imagine & not accusatory. I love racing and OTTBs & could see where she is coming from.. many average horse owners have difficulty adjusting their OTTB to a boarding facility lifestyle & routine. I have helped several adjust... Not saying that is you or what you need. |
I am really happy to hear you have rescued one & brought him back to good health. The TB rescues are great. If your boy isn't tattooed then he hasn't raced, but if he is registered his name will come up on Equibase. Some rescues receive funding specifically for OTTBs that have raced. I have found them very helpful. TB Friends, NeighSavers, CANTER USA, Re-Run..
Also if he is sound & sound minded 3 day eventers love retraining them. My friend is on her 3rd You could market him to them...
I also like to let the breeder know what has become of the racehorse they brought into this world
best of luck
