How We Met

~♥* Theodore O’Connor was humanely euthanized May 28 as a result of an injury sustained in an accident at Karen and David O’Connor’s barn in The Plains, VA. From a statement released by the O'Connors, "'Teddy' got frightened and bolted. He slipped running back to the barn and suffered a severe laceration to his hind leg, severing the tendons and ligaments. Dr. A Kent Allen was on the scene immediately and it was determined after examination that the injuries were catastrophic. Everyone who knew Teddy is devastated."
The 13-year-old eventing super pony defied odds and gravity throughout his career. Standing only 14.1 hands, the
Shetland/ Arabian/ Thoroughbred cross gelding was the reigning Team and Individual Gold Medalist from the 2007 Pan American Games and had top six finishes at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in 2007 and 2008. He was the 2007 USEF/Farnam Horse of the Year and recently had been named to the USEF Short List for Eventing for the 2008 Olympic Games. Ridden by three-time Olympic veteran Karen O’Connor, ‘Teddy’ made friends and picked up fans everywhere he went. Seeing was believing with Teddy as it seemed impossible to imagine that a pony of his size could do his job with such tremendous ease. Thoughts and prayers are with Karen and David, Teddy’s groom Max Corcoran, all of his owners in the Theodore O’Connor Syndicate and everyone associated with this remarkable pony. *♥~

~♥* Missy *♥~
~♥* Missy *♥~ is a gorgious three-year old National Show Horse mare that would love to get Horse of the Day! Her color is very unique; when she was younger it was black tobiano but her coat is gradually turning into blue roan! The beautiful black and white combination well matches her friendly personality, and if you're talking about sweet horses, Missy rates at the top! She loves to greet you at the stall door with a big kiss, then she'll watch you undo the lock and spend a few minutes trying to figure out how it works. If you're mucking her stall she'll wait till you turn your back, then pull on the end of the much fork! When you sweep out her feed tub she'll try to steal your dustpan! Missy has just been started under saddle and just loves it. She's been to several shows already both in-hand and under saddle and did wonderfully. Her trot is unbelievably smooth and when she canters she looks like a dream! We've been trying to get this fabulous horse HOTD for many months, so will you please help us with your votes? I promise to do my very best to return each one! Missy appreciates it so much!

Yes he does! Hopefully this won't damper Karen's love for the sport though. As tragic as this is she needs to stay with it! I can understand her not wanting to get back into it right away though. She needs time to grieve. Well here's another vote for Teddy.
