    Talking I'm no longer horseless! :D

    After 11 years of being horseless, I'm now the very happy owner of a 7 year old OTTB. Meet Jade! Here's her pedigree. She's incredibly sweet and curious and I think we're going to have a ton of fun together.

    My boss and co-workers keep laughing at me since I've been bouncing off the walls with excitement so far this week. I just had to share.

    She looks very sweet. I love the little tiny star! I once was owned by an OTTB... he died last year at 31.

    Yay! Congrats to you and Miss Jade! Bay mares are the best.

    Have a blast with her, and like Alagirl said... bounce away!

    Jade is such a pretty name, to go with a pretty mare.

    I bet you will always keep that bounce when you think of her.

    Thanks everyone. I need to get some better pictures. She's such a little doll and I'm thrilled to have her.

    Belair, congratulations! Jade is beautiful. I bet you will have a wonderful time together

    OverTheHill - Wow, 31 years old? That's amazing! I have a turning 21-next-month OTTB who is the love of my life, I've had her for over 12 years now. I hope she is with me for many more years!
