We still need homes for several horses from one trainer!
We have been asked by a retired breeder/trainer to help him find homes
for his twenty five horses. He has
weanlings, yearlings, two and three year olds that are unraced and unregistered,
registered three and four year-olds, racing geldings, young broodmares and
older broodmares. They are turned out in pasture so our photos are not the
best. Most have good weight but a few need some pounds added to their frames.
The broodmares all have good breeding and have produced winning babies. Some
of the mares would make good sport horse broodmares because of their big
bone and correct conformation. Some of the horses still meet racing conditions.
Many can be registered as Ohio breds. They are all from good racing stock.
Several horses have already be
scooped up by smart buyers. Pricing starts at just $500! Many are available
at $1000! They are sound and healthy. We are hiring a full van to bring
horses to the south this week. We can offer a fantastic deal on shipping if
you live in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, North or South Carolina. We are looking
for people who are willing to retrain these horses and find them permanent
homes. Horse traders need not call.

horses to us, we will find them good homes. Our trainers care about the

and fertilize our pastures several times a year. We tuck the horses
in every night with a 10 PM feeding of hay and water.

Can You Help?
This is the time of year when Thoroughbred race horse are most at
risk. The rescue groups do their best to
find "at risk" horses and rescue them. Still, too many
Thoroughbreds need to find homes. Even horses that are sound are "at
risk" of going to an auction because
the trainer does not have the resources to take care of the horse
over the winter. We will be putting up lots of photos in the next
few weeks. This is the best time to buy!
Can't afford to buy but would like to help? Please donate generously
to your favorite Thoroughbred rescue group. We have many of their
Web sites listed on our Links page. We can't
save them all but we CAN make a difference in the life of one horse.
Won't you help feed a rescue?

do not send out videos because it is important to match the personality
of the horse with the personality of the rider. We are matchmakers,

being a safe sport horse and to make sure they are healthy. You are
