Big Banker - former Prospect Horse "Banker"

Big Banker is now at home in Kansas

March 8, 2007

Banker continues to amaze me with his easygoing personality (my daughter and I can see why everyone at the track called out “Hey Banker” when they saw him – we do the same thing!) He happily stands to be groomed and blanketed in his paddock with no halter and follows us around like a puppy dog. He didn’t move a muscle for the farrier and was an absolute gentleman for the vet. I’m having his teeth done and a chiropractic exam next week.

We’ve tacked him up and my daughter walked him around the indoor (and he was great), but we’re not going to do much until I have his tendon looked at again. He has a very small paddock off his stall and I turn him out in a slightly larger paddock during the day. He has his occasional thoroughbred moment but nothing too dramatic or long-lived!

Thanks again for all of your help. We’ll be in touch ….

Hi Elizabeth. I wanted to let you know that Banker arrived late Saturday afternoon. He had a tough trailer ride (20-plus hours) and reportedly didn’t relax until just a couple of hours before his arrival, but he was quiet and in good shape when he got off the trailer. I have attached a photo of him and my 15-year-old daughter taken about an hour after he got here.

He has happily settled into our farm life and is content to watch the world go by from the paddock attached to his stall. I’ve taken him for several walks and let him roll in the sand in the round pen, but the tendon that was injured last fall has been warm and puffy (no doubt from him bracing himself for all those hours on the trailer) so he doesn’t get to do much. He is very affectionate and loves to be groomed so I’ve spent quite a bit of time pampering him. (I unwrapped a peppermint yesterday for another horse in the barn, and Banker quite vocally let me know that he likes peppermints, too!)

Banker’s prospect profile said he was “classy and kind,” and those two words describe him perfectly. What a cool horse!

We’ll keep you updated …. Many thanks for your help.
