If she still belongs to Jerry and Ann Moss, I doubt she will suffer the fate of auction or worse...plus I believe that equineracers is helping to find her a home, so they will make sure she gets a good home.
The Mosses really do try and do right by all the horses they've bred...if they don't still currently own her, someone ought to let them know...I bet they'd be more than happy to bring this lovely girl home with time off and then to the breeding shed to join the lovely Zenyatta.
If I had my own property/barn, I'd go get her this week...she's lovely, well bred, and even if all she could do was be trail ridden and have a baby here and there, she'd be a more than welcome pretty face over the pasture fence every day. COTH'ers...keep us updated if someone in NorCal gets her!
I thought I was in N. Cal listings when I saw her, but, I can only find her in "CA ALL" so I am not sure where she is!
I am completely smitten with this mare.. I am so glad(??) I don't live in CA anymore because I would be picking her up tomorrow!
If anyone goes to look at her, please update!!
OTTB_Dressage; thanks for the tidbit about the owners. I know that many, many thoroughbred racing breeders do a great job securing their horses' futures and not sending them to slaughter! Like we've all seen before, things happen and I'm hoping with that pedigree and those good looks someone will snatch her right up!
Oh, please someone go get her and let me know what happens!! I just can't stand it, I've been thinking about her nonstop since last night!!
She is nice looking but she doesn't have the pedigree to be a TB broodmare. I checked her dam line back several generations and no one won more than $10k (one 2nd place)
I wasn't thinking good racing pedigree, I was thinking good sporthorse! Jumper, eventer, etc. The blushing groom OTTB who just won that re-trainers competition was sure nice! Any thoughts in that direction?
My friend is going to look at another CANTER horse next Monday .. offered to pick this one up too.. someone help me!!!! I really cannot have another horse!!
