Thoroughbred from Papua New Guinea, Intl

Off-Track Thoroughbred Rejects

About Me

Active within 1422 Days

I am from Papua New Guinea, Intl and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 1 month and 3 days

Nicknames: no. horses sent to slaughter because they're not good enough at racing have never been loved enough to recieve a nickname.

Age: 8 years old

Gender: Stallion

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: 14 to 18 hands. All sizes. Sent away.

Color: Bays, Grays, Blacks, Browns, Chestnuts, Roans, Buckskins... beautiful horses of all sort of colors are thrown away... despite their color.

Type of Riding: racing, racing, racing. until they're proven untalented, get too old, or are broken down by abuse and overworking.

My Horse's Achievements: none. Off the track thoroughbreds are rejected because they have no loving, proud owner to gloat about their achievments.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: They never get treats unless they win, which they don't

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Get out and run. Even if they aren't winners, it's the only exercise they're ever given.

Pet Peeves: These horse's don't have pet peeves, because they aren't spoiled. They're lucky if they ever get a pat.

My Horse's motto: Save us!! Stop and take a second to look beyond the fact that we've failed. Look deeper, and please view us for the beautiful, amazing creatures we really are.

How We Met

Do you understand the life of an average racehorse? They're weaned at four months old, sent to a stall to live in 23 hours of the day, without ANY healthy equine interaction with their buddies. Broken to lunge and tack up at 1 year old. Broken with as harsh methods as necessary at 1 year old. Pushed to gallop at speeds unnatural to any equine. Pushed to run at speeds when their baby bones haven't come closed to maturing. Pushed to run no matter their condition. Bad behavior dealt with by jerking the mouth and a smack from the whip. Taught that it is useless to fight humans, because they are in control. After being "trained" in this way for a short 6 months, they're sent to their first race. Manhandled by 10 people and a dressage whip into the starting gate. Punished strongly after a bad break. Beaten mercilessly with the whip all the way around the 2 mile track. Shouted at after taking last place out of 16 horses. Scared into the trailer and driven quickly back in dead silence. Not given feed that night. In workout the next morning, the horse bucks off the jockey. He has to be twitched for the jockey to get back on. As soon as the twitch is off, horse bolts and crashes through racetrack railing. Horse deemed "unsafe" and shipped off to slaughter. But God knows that this guy is going to make a special someone a very nice foxhunter. God hasn't finished with the horse yet, so he brings a rescue organization ambassador into the picture, and the horse is rescued and sent to a very nice temporary home.

There are many thoroughbred rescue organizations around America. Rescue an OTTB. These horses are amazing. Even if they can't win races, they have limitless potential in dressage, hunters, eventing, jumping, and western. They're pretty and athletic. They just need to find the love and reasurance that they never know existed. Earn their trust, and they'll do anything for you. Are you an experienced, loving horseperson? Then PLEASE, when the time comes for you to get a new horse, PLEASE considerer rescuing one of these amazing horses and giving it a second chance at life.
-- Thanks so much for HOTD everyone who voted! I never expected or asked for it but it's such a blessing that the OTTBs can get some extra attention. :D And I am soooo grateful! THANKYOU!

Hello,

Well it going to be a hot Saturday today in Ohio. It is only 9:03 AM and it's already 75 degrees. And our AC broke and it flooded our basement. So we have to go to my Aunts house and spend the night there, because it got up to 90 in our log house.

I was planing to ride but I don't think I am now because it is so hot. I might just get one Libby out to brush her.

My birthday is the 31st, so I am getting really excited. I will Finally be 13. I wanted to go to a horse show but there was one 3 hours away and I didn't want to ride in the car that long. I should just stay home and clean out the stalls (lol) Well I would be with the horses.


Here's a vote to get your closer towards your goal. Please vote for Libby. I am trying to have people vote a lot for her until Sunday. Then I will be trying to get Pepper HOTD. Beauty, Is going for HOTM, but I would love for you to VOTE FOR LIBBY RIGHT NOW.



When you are on a great horse you will have the best seat you will ever have.-.


Have fun and stay cool.

Maria

Come visit me, Beauty -not on much.

First he is a Big vote for the OTT horses. Most of those horses are owned by business, not personal horses. To them they are just another tax deduction.
I do rescue work also, most babies from sales and the meat truck. Thank you from all the horses saved.
Besides the vote, here is an extra feather for your angel wings!!

while some race horses may be treated as you describe, i don't believe that's average for the typical race horse. i have 2 friends that are racing horses and both treat their horses just like i treat mine. neither one is making much money, but they're attached to their horses and have them turned out with other horses, etc, when they're not at the race track. neither start their horses in the harsh way that's described here.
my mare, sing, is an OTT from KY. she's had a good life as well. i sent for her racing history and she was a slow runner, never won or placed, yet was treated well and kept until age 4 as a potential brood mare until they sold her.
