I may have missed this but what happened to City Look?
I may have missed this but what happened to City Look?
The information and pictures for Street Cruise don't come up for me. Is this on my end?? And does anyone know anything about Late and Great?
Late and Great's owner has decided to keep him! She just cannot part with him.
Unfortunately, City Look coliced badly and had to be put down. Her owner/trainer worked very hard to save her and was devastated when she lost her.
Two or three of the new listings have an error message when you click through, so it's not just you! Nice additions this week, there's several that I'd like to see in my barn.
OMG, people talk about how TB breeders aren't breeding for long term soundness anymore. . .well, here's a throwback for ya, http://fingerlakesfinesttbs.com/whos-livin-bettor/
Need to show this guy to Denny Emerson; there might still be some true sound TB warriors still being bred!!
Someone can have the horse of their lifetime with this guy! Anyone who thinks he's too old to go on to a new career, my old trainer's last Advanced event horse came off the track at 11
Sorry for the error message. They should all have photo's listed now. Its a long numerical code and evidently its a strong dyslexia day. I double checked and could see everyone's. If it isn't working, let me know so I can figure it out (or find someone who can).
Just curious does anyone know anything about Wayside Park, is he still avail, etc, etc any insider info??
Speaking of longivity, have you seen this guy? He has 89 starts and tight ankles and knees. He's only 7, but has the starts of an 11 year old.
So many people have stepped up recetly to bring a Finger Lakes Finest into their lives. I am astounded and so grateful that so many horses have been finding new homes. I have personally been involved in either showing around the people who have found the "one," or in communicating with them about their track visit and horses to look at, so I am particularly thankful. So many people have truly made this a time for Thanks Giving for Finger Lakes Finests.
Too Tough Jake, who we just listed, found a home today. And just in the past 10 days the roster of placed horses includes: Runnin Bayou, Pretty Victory, Lovely Promise, Neverabettercity, RunforMikey, Capridge, Missed the Notes. Plus three lucky horses who did not even get up on the listings because shoppers saw them first: Isamu, Navedano, and Social Club. And the shopper we showed around last weekend is honing in on her "one," and we are escorting more shoppers this weekend.
But there are only three more weeks until the stable area closes, so even if we keep up this astounding pace of a horse a day finding a new home, there will be many more wonderful horses still in need.
So while giving thanks for your family, health, and good happenings in your life on this holiday of reflecting on things to be thankful for, keep the FL Finests in mind.
I've had my eye on one of these flf but haven't found the time to make the trek up there yet :( and if I have the horse vetted, that's two treks. How many people go up with their trailers and not get their new horses vetted?
That said, I am determined to find my next Ottb soon :))
Well something about him speaks to me, Iam in Ma. So it would be a long ride which is why I was asking if there was any inside scoop on him,wonder if they would let him go for next to nothing, that would make the drive out a little less painful, I think Iam about 6ish hrs from there? Sigh what to do!?
If anyone goes to look at another maybe you could peek at him and give me a heads up??? Thanks and......
A possibility for you, Amerlyn3, might be to call on the horses you're interested in, make sure they are available, plan on a travel date and see if one of the track vets is available that day, drive out with trailer in tow, find "the one" (or ones ;)) and see about setting up a PPE.
Or show up sans trailer, find horse, schedule PPE (I wasn't there for the vetting on Brolio) and find a trailer heading your way? Or possibly find a place close by to FL that could board your FLF a few days/week until you could make another trek out.
I really would hesitate buying without even a basic flexion test done. Both sets of volunteers are great at disclosing what they can descern by their eyes, but are not vets.
That's literally what I almost did, but ended up having a non-FLF person toss one on a trailer instead.
Couldn't be happier with my lovely mare. :)
'Course, I didn't get to see her in person, first, but I saw her pictures and was comfortable buying off those alone.
I'm comfortable just buying off a picture and talking with the trainer. SEPowell and BC answered a few questions and were very willing to help find a shipper to SD -- it all came down to my gut after speaking with the trainer. When I first saw Itch's picture... I wanted him and he turned out to be just as the trainer stated.... he is now with his new person and I couldn't be happier.
There are lots of nice horses listed that aren't specifically spoken too in the various oooooooooooh and ahhhhhhhhhhh threads - don't let that deter you. Wayside is a cutie and looks to have run consistently, pedigree isn't all that shabby either ;)
I can't say 'don't get a ppe', but his consistency on the track would lead my gut to think he'd hold up well in a second career.
soooooooooooooooo.... when are yous going to add a finest to your barn????? :D
