    I saw on the FLF facebook page that she is being taken in by FLTAP. So she's got a little reprieve, hopefully she can find someone just perfect.

    But another sweet mare who needs to be gone is my girl, Desert Doctor, doesn't anyone like her but me?

    "Horns" is a real thing horses can get. There is some fancy name for it but it's not coming to me at the moment. I knew of a thoroughbred mare who had them, mind you she was a terrible weaver, and the vets always said that the bony protuberances can be caused when the skull is forming or by the horse repeatedly wacking its head in the same place, eventually resulting in calcification of the repeatedly injured tissue. I'm sure yours is just how the skull formed though

    I wonder - how/why he has them. They are small but obvious enough to see if you're looking for them and definitely easy to feel. But they're very evenly situated, one on either side of his forehead, a bit closer to the ears than the eyes - as if he began to form horns at birth then realized "wait a minute - I'm a horse!?!"...

    Lexie,
    Congratulations on your new stunning handsome hunk of horse! When you finally get to see New York New York in person you are going to be soooo impressed! Best wishes for safe travels, and we hope he turns out to be everything you have been dreaming of.

    And count me with Heliodoro in the Desert Doctor fan club --she is a very nice looking mare, and is going to make a much better sport horse than racehorse. Jingling for someone to step up for her!

    I LOVE Desert Doctor. She and AP Light, who I bought back in July, would make a lovely pair of dark bay beauties. Alas, I can't afford to buy and ship her. If anyone needs enabling, AP Light has turned into a total puppy dog who lives to be loved on and worked with. She's fast becoming one of my all time favorites.

    Default Aww shucks

    Thanks Lexie and Maunder! It is entirely my pleasure to help where and when I can. I give full credit to my fellow volunteers who have been amazingly productive this year, taking the website to a new level of awesome!

    Yes, Dance Cocoa Dance is in a safe place. Phew.

    I'm closing in on geezerhood and not much of a social networker, but I have to admit that Facebook and such has made a HUGE difference in our visibility.

    Jingling now for Desert Doctor and Round Not Sleek!

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!
    I went to check out the website this morning, and Led Advantage is still listed. If her connection fell through, I am EXTREMELY interested in her. I love,love,love the Copelan bloodline. If something falls through and she needs a home, I'll take her on the first van south I can find. Thanks!

    Realrush - We received confirmation that Led Advantage did find a home and has settled in. I have moved her over to placed and hope you find someone else to put on a van heading south. Thanks so much!

    Thanks, Rhymes. Hope she got a good home. I'll definitely keep an eye on future postings!

    I just wanted to update everyone on Bella or Genuine Offer. She is now being boarded at my trainer's farm in Linwood, NY (south of Rochester), she is still for sale!

    I saw her under saddle yesterday and she's a pretty fancy little mare, a little up since she raced last week and hasn't done much in the interim. She popped over a few small fences very nicely. After the ride, we let her loose without tack in the indoor and she just cantered round and round! Bella even decided to jump by herself twice showing lovely form and a nice balanced canter. She's got a nice stall and some turnout to relax in for now.

    Still jingling for little Desert Doctor! 6 months from now I might be able to take her in at our new place, a little incentive to get that fencing up ASAP...

    First Crack arrived home her in MD today . The shipper said she was perfect and she unloaded and went into the barn and started searching for some grain.... She has n't had turnout for over 18 months , so she'll get to go in the round pen tomorrow!

    Default First Crack

    Congratulations Elizabeth. Her owner, Nancy, loved your mare and wants nothing more than a wonderful new home for her. Please do keep us updated on her progress on the other FLF thread.

    Two items of new home good news today! Great Privilege has found a nice home, where he has a lovely family to dote on him and he gets to hang out with their two paint horses.
    And Cool Mountain shipped today to Akindale TB Rescue, where his breeder, Pin Oak Stud, has agreed to sponsor him in their retraining and adoption program. The loyalty and caring for the horses they breed is wonderful and heartwarming-- we wish all TB breeders were this conscientious.

    New York New York arrived at his new home today in GA. He is a really sweet and sensible young horse. He went right into his stall and starting eating hay while taking in the new sights and sounds. Can't wait to go see him again tomorrow!

    Although the track is closed horses are still available. Ostin's Miracle is now on a farm just a few minutes from the track and his price has been reduced to $2000. His owners are motivated to sell him so give Dorothy a call if he interests you. At this farm you may hop on him and take a little ride!
