    DH and I are getting a retired racehorse this weekend. [​IMG]
    I'm not sure if he will be delivered Friday night or Saturday. We can hardly wait!
    Hopefully my Quarter Horse is as happy about the new addition as we are!

    Here are some pics...


    Handsome boy! (imho)

    I caught him mid-blink.

    Congrats! How long has he been off the track? He doesn't seem to be quite as race fit/lean as most off track TB's! He's gorgeous![​IMG]

    He is gorgeoous.

    All you horse people and your photos make me jealous! I want to feel some velvet noses, and smell that wonderful smell of horse sweat, hay and leather again!

    Congrats! Hope yours is an easier keeper than mine. He eats 19 lbs of safechoice a day and lots of alfalfa hay, coastal won't keep the weight on him....He is also on full grass pasture here.

    Your new one is a beauty though [​IMG]
