Just wanted to post a note that Friends of Ferdinand, Inc. has updated their track and available horses listings. Our race seasons have started and horses are being listed weekly! We have a number of nice horses available for adoption, plus the track listing horses.
She's Got Wings is an Indiana-bred 2005 TB filly that was retired from racing due to just being too slow. Smoke's foster home reports that she is proving herself to be a very smart and level-headed filly. She appears to be sound, loves being turned out and has fit into the mixed herd very well. She'll be starting in our retraining program in the near future.
This gal was adopted, but financial circumstances have caused her return to the program. "Flirt" retired from racing in November 2008 and was donated to FFI by Mast Thoroughbreds after receiving no bids at the Hoosier Park Paddock Sale. She has been an easy-going filly from day one. She completed 60 days of training under saddle with a dressage rider in mid-April. We believe she would excel as a hunter or lower level dressage/eventer. She has a nice rhythm and cadence to her gaits and a great work ethic.
Legend is full of personality. He completed a trail riding training program in March 2009. He is a super sweet gelding that needs a job. He has been approved by the veterinarian for flat work and trail riding. Please contact us for more information on Legend. His foster home reports that he is easy to handle, stands still for mounting and is in general, a nice horse to be around. Legend is up to date on shots and worming.
