How We Met

Eight Belles was not my horse, infact the only way i would have known she exsisted was if i hadn't watched the Derby. All i know is that horses and riders are coming to near death or death experiences from horse racing... Is it really fair to the horses?? yeah, there doing what they are bred to do, its there instink, but the day before the derbey i watched this show and the famous jockey Lafftee was saying how he loved to race. An average time for a jockey the race is around 5 years, Laffetee went for 39 years. That justed made me think how much these men love riding and why they do it. I couldnt even tell u how many broken bones and limbs that man had in his body. That just goes to shoe u that Belles loved doing what she did and she died doing what she loved...

That is how i want to die... doing something i love.

A Very Courageous Filly
She ran strong to complete the race in second only a few lengths behind Big Brown. Such a big hearted filly, running with all those colts. So sad how the Derby was her last race. She deserved to live longer, but at least she doesn't have to endure pain from her serious injury. She shall rest in peace with all the horses that have lost their lives and passed on. She can now run freely without anything in her way.

Come visit me, Charlie Horse.

The only reason I heard of eight belles was when I turned on the derby. I told my dad she was going to win it, but he said the odds were for Big Brown. She ran her heart out and did great, I DID cry when they announced her uthinasa. She diserved to win, and I really think they should have taken a moment in silence for her, or someting...

Come visit me, Magic.

Eight Belles looked like my horse UVM Ilona
I just heard about what has happened to Eight Belles and I am so upset that the trainer didn't think to put bandages around her fetlock joints for extra support during the race. I don't know if that would have saved her bones from breaking, but I think at least it would have been an excellent preventative measure. You received my vote and I hope that you receive many more. Rest in peace Eight Belles!

Come visit me, UVM Ilona.

Jackson for HOTM in June
The reasons why to vote for Jackson are: 1. Oldenburgs are rare on HC and I want to make them more known 2. We are doing our first Children's Hunters (3') classes in two weeks 3. He is a 9 year old bay gelding 4. He was my dream horse when i bought him, and he is amazing. 5. He loves everybody! He is a very sweet horse who really wants to win HOTM! PLEASE PLEASE VOTE FOR HIM FOR HORSE OF THE MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!! I will get more pictures up soon. Please copy and paste this to all of your friends. Thanks. Voted. ***Rest in Peace Belles***!!!! You will be greatly missed from this Earth, but I know you won't be the only one who will die from racing. If we keep racing horses many more like you will soon die.

Come visit me, Jackson.
