    Default Facebook and its connecting wonders

    I have a dismal race horse that I have run 3 times. After the first time an old connection of this horse contacted me to offer a future retirement home with his former (now ill) owner at the request of the woman's daughter. Incredibly heartwarming to know that he has someone that wants to offer him love and a home after all this time (he's 8), and tracked him down after all of the claims he has gone through (5 in 2012 alone).
    So now thanks to Facebook, he is going to go home. Just need to find him the wheels to get from Bowie, md to IL. And ASAP!!!

    Also should add that another former connection contacted me regarding a different horse through Facebook last summer. And helped get him a retirement home as well.

    That is what Facebook should be used for!!!
    Race training and retraining Thoroughbreds.

    Facebook has its uses for sure. Very nice of his former connections to offer to take him once retired.

    Love it! I found the girl who gave me my first own pony when I was 7. We have reconnected and have become good horse friends!
