I have tears in my eyes right now...am SO happy to hear a happy ending for Max and his friend. I think through so many good horses I knew and wonder where they are today....
you guys ROCK...thank you.

This is such great news! I wish I wasn't so far away. I could board them (well one) cheaper but it would cost 3 months board at least (I'm guessing) to ship one down here! =( Well hopefully they will both get adopted quickly. Thank goodness this trainer is more um, horse friendly than the other one. He'll never hear it but I am sure thankful these horses went to him and didn't stay where they were.

Yay for Le Numerous. I've been thinking about him all day since I read this thread....
I worked at Prairie Meadows in the racing center during the summer that he raced so much there. He was nothing particularly special to me ... just one of those horses that run like clockwork... just one of those horses that are familiar... one of those horses that I wouldn't even think "what ever happened to...".
I'm glad you got him! I'm going to think seriously about adoption... I already have 1 horse, why not two? It was the first one that was the hard decision...
Thanks to those who stuck on these horses' trails and to all involved with the rescue and rehabilitation of the Thoroughbred Race Horse. I have been down with the flu for a week and finally something uplifting! Blessings!

Oh abrant, do think seriously about adopting one of these guys. And that goes for anyone else also. These aren't the kind of horses that most folks are interested in. I haven't even seen them, so I have no idea how big they are, but most folks want the big young horses. These old campaigners sometimes sit and wait for their person for quite a while. I can't think of anything more wonderful than for them to end up with one of the folks who have held by Max for all this time, and who opened their hearts to Le Numerous so rapidly.
Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past - let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
