How We Met

"Maddux" (PLAYING THE FIELD 1997-TB colt by Metfield out of Quietly Played)was bred and born in Kentucky. He's a grandson of Seattle Slew. The breeder nomimated him for the Breeders Cup when he was born and sent him to the Fasig-Tipton auction as a yearling. He was sold and sent to Illinois where he went into training. He was raced at 2, sold again and raced six more times when he was 3. He wasn't winning the races so he was sold again. He came to GA and went through 2 more owners. Then went on to eventing. After years of competition he stared to have some lameness that would come and go that they couldnt pinpoint the cause of so his previous owner retired him and put him up for adoption. I had been on the internet reading about the many racehorses who end up going to slaughter; (including “1986 Kentucky Derby Winner Ferdinand) I was overcome with grief, so I started signing petitions against it. Thats when I started looking at ads and I saw MADDUX. I HAD TO HAVE HIM! Thank goodness his previous owner loved him and wanted to find him a good home. Now he has a forever home and is getting much needed R&R. (AND LOTS OF LOVE and TREATS)~ I am not crazy I am horse crazy.~ MADDUX IS THE BEST HORSE I HAVE EVER HAD AND IT IS AN HONOR TO OWN HIM..

Fancy is leaving you a vote with a little humour to start your wonderful weekend!!!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
Dear Horse Owner:

Are you experiencing too many second and third
finishes behind enferior horses at horse shows?
During a trail ride, does your horse forget
everything he was bred to do?

Well, this simple chain letter is meant to bring
relief and happiness to you. Unlike most chain
letters, it doesn't cost any money.

Simply send a copy to six other horse owners who
are dissatisfied with the way that their horse is
behaving. Also, bundle up your horse and send
him/her to the horse owner at the top of list. Do not
use a return adress or the post office may try to
contact you.

In one week you should receive 16,436 horses, and
at least one of them should be a keeper.

Have faith in this. Do not break the chain. One
owner broke the chain and got his own horse back.

Good Luck!

Our family decorated the tree yesterday, my baby boy really enjoyed this! But I couldn't find my outside decorations:( Fancy was so sweet when I went to feed her. She rears and twirls around when she sees me coming in her direction. And I wondered if it was a test of "Whose in Charge", I discovered by her actions when I get to her, she only misses me and wants me near. Because when I get there she is submisive and sooo sweet, when I get to her she gently blows into my nostrils, which means she accepts me. And I blow back, then puts her head close to me and she is just sooo sweet.

How does your horse greet you? Here is a "Christmas day will be here before you know it" vote.

A whinny & vote from Petite fleur
Well MADDUX & Petite Fleur are the same age! Hope all is well in your part of the world!

A good evening FRIDAY vote ! Well after repairing the fence damage from the wind and rain and mud it cleared up after 2 PM and mom and I went on a walk and trot short ride around the neighborhood ! Dad walked along with us and we stopped at my FAVORITE field where I am left to free range eat the sweet grass while they get some more walnuts! (They could be squirrels!) Then on the way back home I got loving and caresses from the neighbors who just love me! They cannot believe I did not run away with my fencing down! I know where I have it good, he he he!

Vote 62 MADDUX from Petite Fleur
Hi handsome Maddux from petite Fleur the stubborn mare!
Petite Fleur has tender feet and needs some Easy boots ! She was not in a good frame of mind for riding today so it went rather poor for ME and HER! I see my farrier Friday so I hope to get her chipped hoof taken care of and order some Easy boots. Other than that she is an angel and I have a lot to learn from HER! I am disappointed but there is always tomorrow and another way!

oh, maddux is quite the beauty. thank goodness you were able to save him from further stress. he's quite young and should have many years ahead with you. i have a KY bred/born thor mare, sing, that i got as a 4 yr old and trained. she's 15 now and the "love of my life". she's a "packer"...has done some eventing, fox hunting, a bit of showing in the hunters, trial rides and even barrel racing (like 30 sec run) lol. i have a small riding school and have my pony peekaboo on here so my students can come look at her. leaving a vote.

Best of luck with the chiro for beautiful Maddux! I hope the rain rot problem gets solved. We are having a cold snap now, even my neighbor has her horse blanketed! I am looking for a medium water proof breathable blanket for PF along with some Easy Boots! We really love our horses don't we?

Vote 58 MADDUX from petite Fleur
Hi there! I am so sorry about the rain rot! I think if this is going to be a problem and you or a reliable person at the stable can put a light weight water proof and breathable coat on him that will help him out! Because being locked up in a stall all day stinks! PF likes the rain and I just brush her a lot after to get any fungus off her that may show up later! I also do her hooves whether they are too dry or if she is in wet conditions too long I put on a anti fungal hoof treatment. Hope I could tell you something useful!

Missed hearing from you Playing the Field! How has your week-end been? Mom was sick but doing great now!

Here is a Sunday vote from Petite Fleur ! We had a beautiful Sunday outing! Since I have to wait till my hoof chips in the front are filed down I went on a 30 minute walk and got ot free roam graze again in the field with the walnut trees! Mom & Dad had a picnic lunch and I kept walking over and trying to steal their sandwiches. They finally gave in and gave me some of the good French bread! All in all I had lots of quality time today and tomorrow (if the rain does not come back!) we are tacking up and just riding in the pasture on the soft ground. I am such a lucky mare!

THANK you from the bottom of PF's big heart (and mine!) for putting her on your page also! YES, I know Maddux's story and reading it again just makes me weep at how these lovely God given friends can be forced to run at an age before their bones are fully mature! He is lucky he did not snap his legs at 2 years of age! Thanks you are an inspiration for other horse owners of ALL BREEDS and certainly one for me!

NEED SOME ADVICE MADDUX!
Petite Fleur sending vote 42 on this grey Friday from here in southeast France! Need a little feed back here!
FRIDAY (TGIF) VOTE ! I need some lunging tips for working on an uneven surface and no round pen or arena on our property ! PETITE FLEUR just wants to run a long side of me! She thinks she is pleasing me but I want her to go into her circle with my lunge line! It is about 20 feet long but I only need about 8 to 12 feet with her because she is a calm gal! I ran more than HER yesterday and getting ready to try again this evening! SORE and OUT of bREATH in Southeast FRANCE! Playing the Field may be able to help!
