    Default Trotted Under Saddle!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUykcozPShU

    So, some of you may remember me saying I couldn't get my OTTB to trot under saddle. After two days and a ton of ground poles, here is our first under saddle trot!

    I just came on here just to see how your guy was doing. That's so exciting! I just got a Madaglia d'Oro baby the end of October and I would fill my whole barn with them if I could! He just turned 4 and I couldnt be happier with him.

    Good luck and keep us updated!

    So far I have nothing but nice things to say about him. Very very level headed. If this is what Madaglia d'Oro babies are like, maybe he really is worth the $100k a breeding fee.

    CONGRATS! I could feel your frustration before! I have to ask, though, what the heck was up with the pile of dogs/pigs/whatevers in the middle of the arena?

    Mine sold for $75k, won a stakes in his 2nd race and then stayed on the board but only in claiming races, never anything rated. He won just under $78k, before I got him. He just lost the drive to race after the one trainer gave him 6 months off.

    He is certainly enjoying the pampering he's getting now!

    Love those big money youngsters. My old Small Junior sold for $450,000 pounds in the UK as a yearling.

    We went on a trail walk today. Saw turkey, deers and a VERY scary cardinal. He was a peach.

    OK - I went back and watched the video again knowing that, and now I see it! I could have sworn it was a swarm of dogs or something!
