    Exclamation TB's I Have Known - Come "like" our Facebook page!

    TB's I Have Known FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/ThoroughbredsIHaveKnown

    I started a simple spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...6THpkdFE#gid=0
    You can add as much or as little info as you want, but at least add the horses names and either your COTH name, or email. This can be a great resource for those who adopt out OTTB's.

    My reasoning behind wanting to do this is because I know first hand, how valuable info on a horses background really is. Several years ago I just happened to go to ReRun's Ky website and couldn't believe my eyes when I came across a horse I had known since he was only a few weeks old. I had helped break him, galloped him regularly, been his groom, etc. At 3 he was a solid 17.2 hh. So he was hard to miss. I excitedly called ReRun, and although I couldn't adopt him myself, I was able to give them his history, info on his soundness issues, and even his barn name. I also gave them my contact info to pass along to potential adopters. A few weeks later a woman contacted me. She had seen tbe horse, but wasn't quite convinced. I was able to pass along some funny stories of him as a youngster, and even a few pictures from his racing days. Because of what I was able to share with her, she did end up adopting him.

    So, lets get that spreadsheet filled out so we can send it to TB Rescues!!

    Haven't we done this before? I'm reasonably sure we have a list like this around here somewhere. This search engine frustrates me though. It may have just been a thread that we all added to.

    Edited to add - hate google docs, I don't have a gmail account except for my work account, don't want to use that for this purpose.

    not your fault, of course, you have good intentions. But the google doc thing requires a google account

    It's over on the racing forum, and very recently bumped so should be on the first page.

    We did, but the person going it could no longer keep it up, and it was on her website. The original thread is one of the first threads over on the racing forum (I'm on my phone, or I'd paste the link here. I'm up for ideas, if you have any others, but getting a google account is pretty quick and easy.

    I played, but only added one. Felt like she was the only one I could "claim". What fun!

    I am having trouble entering my information. I'm blonde, so detailed instructions would be appreciated!

    I tried clicking on the first cell where it says registered name, but it won't let me enter anything into the cell. I also tried clicking on the number one, which then takes me to another view with multiple cells for more information, but again, can't enter anything. Please help!

    I got it! My default view was mobile, so once I changed it to desktop, I was able to access the spreadsheet. Thanks for your help!

    I added a couple this morning but for the life of me can't get their pedigree links to paste. Maybe I just need more coffee?

    Do you want horses we knew as racehorses or a TB we have now regardless of if they raced?
