I posted this on the racing side but it occurred to me a lot of TB people might be interested to see how it was done in the old days. Too bad there aren't many Billy Turners left.
Thank you for that. The horse that took me first to the upper levels, in both dressage and eventing, was a Slew grandson. Best horse I have ever, and probably will ever, sit on.
Thank you so much! What a great article!! I completely agree with the views Billy Turner expressed in this article...
I work student/groom for a rider of a slewy baby. He is an amazing horse, has a wonderful gallup, and nice character. Fun horse to be around and occasionally ride.
Thanks, my girl is a Seattle Slew descendant (via Slew 'O Gold- Slew of Angels). Interesting to find out more about her ancestors.
Thank you very much for posting this article. It tore at my heartstrings.
Brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.
Wonderful article!! I totally agree that I wish there were more Billy Turners left in the racing world.
With the exception of colour (blood bay, no markings) my current Slew baby is the spitting image of his grand sire....giant shoulders, quirky mind and all. I love him immensely.
Thank you for posting!
"look deep into his pedigree. Look for the name of a one-of-a-kind horse who lends to his kin a fierce tenacity, a will of iron, a look of eagles. Look & know that Slew is still very much with us."
