    Where do we see he had a PPE done???

    I have emailed Krystal and she hasn't mentioned this.

    **Edited to add, she replied to my email and said he has not had a ppe done. **

    Yes, I can give you her history since last winter. She had last winter off and once she started training for racing she was a good ride on the farm. She became increasingly nervous once she got to the track. Her trainer says she's very nervous at the track for handling and riding but she is not a dangerous ride. Also, they feel she can handle sporthorse training and fitness, and believe it is not the conditioning that makes her nervous but the track environment. If she were coming home with me she'd live in an outshed!

    She's very athletically made and light on her feet. I think she'd be like riding a cat, a nice cat.

    Couple pieces of facts here...

    While she indeed may be keeping him safe, she did let him run yesterday. So not like she stopped him from running under the old ownership and trainer, as would be implied.

    Yukon Gold Rush also ran in that race yesterday.

    Krystal told me that the condition set by the trainer for her buying him was that she had to agree to let the horse have one more race -- and since he is her employer, and he controlled the papers, she really had no choice but to accept this condition. Finger Lakes sets a "starts per stall" quota that trainers have to meet in order to get as many -- or any -- stalls the next season, so when they have sound ones that they can get another race out of, they do it.

    Thanks, everybody, for your plugs for the still available horses, especially the mares! There have been more "gelding only" shoppers this season, and some absolutely gorgeous, sweet, great moving mares are still hanging around as a result.

    And this morning I got a message from the very happy new owner of Cherokee John -- he shipped home with her today to go start a new career as a H/J show horse. Hooray -- what a way to start the day!

    And then the trainer called to tell me that Grand Rapture and WynotSiyue had found homes, and to thank us. Wow, this day is getting better and better.
    And tomorrow morning I get to help load Fearless Buzz and Barbarules onto my friend's trailer to go to their new home. Happy dancin' for sure.

    OK so for the folks that know this stuff...

    Is a PPE exam up there really $150 per xray???

    Krystal told me that and I am still gasping. We don't even cost that much here in chester county.

    I just asked my DIL who is a trainer here and she confirmed $150/joint.

    This new COTH format is not very friendly with my PMs. I get a banner over the entire thing. Please send your inquiry to me at Marjorie.Linn@flhealth.org. I'll be happy to answer any and all questions.

    Foundation Mare...

    ok there seems to be a misunderstanding of terms. Is it $150 for all views of a joint? Or just $150 per a single view?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sigh...If I didn't live across the country from him and shipping wouldn't cost an arm and a leg, I'd bring Whose Living Bettor home in an instant. He's gorgeous and sounds so lovely, and I have a huge soft spot for the old warhorses.

    On Wednesday morning when I was at the track I ran into Ralph D'Alessandro, Western Deed's owner/trainer, and he told me the horse had found a home. I asked where, and he said somewhere in South Carolina. No further information.
    But Ralph also told me that he urgently needs to find a home for Desert Doctor and the price has dropped to $500-- very good looking, nice moving, sweet and quiet 4 yo dark bay filly, on pro-boards:

    Just not panning out as a race horse, has not broken her maiden, and as he says, even if she eventually does, then what. And his farm is just too full with better racing prospects and his broodies and babies to overwinter her. So she really needs to go. Spread the word!

    Ahh, this urgent time of year, tugs at the heart for sure. But many many happy landings are happening too. We just heard about one more: thanks to our frantic networking and the huge FB network of one of our new volunteers, Led Advantage found a home this afternoon! This mare has been one of my personal faves ever since I first listed her last summer and the pleas from the assistant trainer that she was running out of time were tearing my heart out.
    Thanks, great COTH networkers and enablers!

    Default Yukon

    I wanted everyone to know that Yukon arrived at his new digs last night. He is a wonderful horse. I am happy to say that he will move on to a career that not many horses do at this time from the racetrack. I wanted to say that you to Suzanne. The van company I used was the best!!! I can post the information if any one is interested. I was a bit shocked that a horse I was getting happened to be in the entries. Well, he is sane and sound.

    As I had been trying to figure out how to hide my choc lab at the stabling gate , Christine called me and said they weren't allowing trailers in. So she led Cherokee John out to where we were parked, up into the trailer and off we went! I really didn't get a good look at my boy til I got home. Anyways, was the trailer ban because of all the pro shippers or something??

    Hooray for Yukon's safe arrival! Police horses get so many pats from the admiring public, and we know Yukon will eat it up and bask in the glory of his important new job and of the memory of the fallen hero he will be named after.

    Yes, please do post the info about the shipping company. We are getting many requests for shipping recommendations!
