See the photos of our ride and our Easter/birthday party that we enjoyed when we returned to the farm on our 2011 Outings & Training Photos page under Training Thoroughbreds.
We have two more days of training notes for Imatexan posted under our Training Thoroughbreds menu above. Both Imatexan and Spot Run are doing extremely well with their training. Tomorrow we will be posting the diary that Katelyn has been keeping about what she is learning while training Spot Run.
