Gunner (Unanimous) is doing great. I gradually upped his feed and he is now back to full portions. I spoke to my vet who told me to start them all on psyllium for sand colic. He just had one pass away in Feb. due to sand colic. He is from Pennsylvania and had not heard much about it until he got down here. He was very insistent on me starting something for this. I started it this past week. So far so good. I will do the poop ball test soon as well.

Hey Elizabeth,

Again Gunner was such a great patient today. He handled the poking, prodding, shots and a even a full hand in his mouth like an old veteran. Dr. Parry is a semi-retired vet from Pennsylvania who moved here to take it a little easier. He loves horses and still has a few back in Pennsylvania. He was a true gentleman and was very gentle with my guys.

Ex-race horse makes a great pet! Unanimous gets his bath.

Gunner’s teeth were great (no sharp areas or caps that needed to be removed). He was very happy with everything I was feeding and recommended bute as needed. We are going to start Gunner with this and see how he does.

They now make orange flavored bute and Gunner loves it. Who knew?!? They should have thought of this years ago! Would have saved a lot of time and effort trying to “doctor” my mares feed over the years.

I will keep you updated on his progress. Thank you for taking the time to talk to me today. I know you were busy. Take care.

Sincerely,
Stephanie

OTTB - at home. Unanimous has settled in nicely and is doing well. August 2007

Hey Elizabeth!

Gunner has settled in nicely and is doing well. He did not have an abscess as was first thought but was an outstanding patient nonetheless while I soaked, tarred and wrapped him! He got his feet done and is still quite sore (I gave him bute after receiving his trim and new shoes). He had a tough time putting weight on that foot for the farrier. Poor Guy! He was such a trooper.

I was finally able to locate a reputable vet who makes house calls. He is coming out tomorrow (Monday) to examine him as well as update all his shots, dental, etc.. I will keep you updated.

Hope things are well at B&B. I love my little man so much. Talk to you soon!

Sincerely,
Stephanie

Ex-race horses make great family horses and sport horses.

July 30, 2007

Hey Elizabeth and Barry!

Gunner just went in for the night for the first evening in his new home. I had to rig a fan above his stall considering we really don't use the barn except during the winter and when it's storming. Ben had his stall all ready for him with fresh shavings, hay and water (what a great husband) I hand grazed him and walked him around the pasture for him to get his bearings. I let him go in the pasture near the barn monitoring him the whole time (earlier, when I got home, I put him up in his stall and went up to take a nap. Ben said an hour or so later he was kicking). Once I let him go he had quite a few bucks to get out of his system and then went back to grazing.

Esprit was pretty keen on him...to a certain extent. He was very intrigued with our yellow lab, Gracie and followed her around a lot. Later, I took him up to the house and hosed his foot for 15 or so minutes (he is a little ouchie). All in all it has been a truly wonderful, rewarding day. I could not have asked for a sweeter more loving horse. Here are some pics for you to enjoy.

Thank you again for everything you have done to make this possible. I am truly grateful.

God Bless,
Stephanie

Here was his Bargain Barn description

Unanimous is a 15'2 hand 2005 gelding.

Unanimous is a 15'2 hand 2005 gelding. He is a beautiful and kind horse. He still has four years of growing to do so he should end up over 16 hands. He has had 6 months of riding but is not going to make it as a race horse. He had a piece of wood go thru his foot as a weanling. His caretakers did not take care proper of him and he almost died. We nursed him back to health in hopes that he would make a racehorse but it isn't going to happen. "Gunner" is up to date on everything with no vices except the fact he will eat anything put in front of him. He is a very easy keeper with a kind attitude. Will be suitable for flat work and trail ridding only. He is a gorgeous flat kneed mover. He has some arthritis issues due to the old injury. You must be prepared to provide ongoing joint supplements to help him.

Unanimous is a son of Doneraile Court who is the son of Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. Doneraile Court sold in the 1997 Keeneland Sales as a yearling for $1,000,000!!! His dam's sire was Conquistador Cielo who was Horse of the Year & Champion 3-year-old colt in 1982. Click to see Unanimous' pedigree and famous family.
