As the year winds down we are still trying to keep up with all the wonderful OTTB Success Stories we have received. Please do not be upset if we have still not gotten your update posted. We are working to get caught up, but ‘real’ work gets in the way. Please understand that we read all of your success stories and save all of your photos so we can post them when we find the time. Feel free to nudge us if you are anxious to see your story up on our OTTB Success Stories Web site.
Sometimes we are just overwhelmed with the amount of time it takes to keep up with our Web sites and Facebook page. We still have to run our Web design business as well as our boarding and training farm so that we have the resources to place these Thoroughbreds. We do forward your e-mails and photos to share them with the former owners, breeders and trainers of your horses so they know they are doing well.
Because our buyers stay in touch with us, the race horse owners and trainers feel safe in allowing us to find homes for their horses. Your stories also help other potential Thoroughbred owners to understand just how wonderful an off-the-track Thoroughbred can be. You may never know how many horses your stories have saved because someone bucked the common myths and went forward with the purchase of an OTTB.
This year we will celebrate ten years since we placed our first off-the-track Thoroughbred – Snake Proof in 2002. I have recently been contacted by someone who knows him and we are told he is still doing well and packing children over fences after his eventing career with the Morgan Rehm. See Snake Proof’s original Horse For Sale page on the old section of our Web site. It has been a challenge to keep up with technology and still keep all the old content available and that is why the site looks different if you go back to see stories in our archives.
We would love to have current photos and an update on Snake Proof for our 10th Anniversary page. . . and we would also like to hear from anyone who has a horse we have sold over the years even if you are not the original buyer. Send us photos and stories for our 10th Anniversary page and show the world how much these horses mean to the people who own them now.
Here are some photos of Snake Proof that we dug up on our computers . . . Click on any photo to begin a slide show. Enjoy! More to come for our 10th Anniversary.
