This really is a fun day. The horses are something in the flesh, they are in well taken care of racing form. I last went down about 8 years ago and bought my second ottb. His picture had not been posted yet. He is a wow horse with an adorable face that shows his good heart. It was love at first sight.
An interesting story came out of that. The vet checking him for me got all excited to find I was from Rockport. He told me he had clients who have a summer home in Rockport, and their colt was going to win the Kentucky Derby next year, and they had named him Rockport Harbor after our town. No one in our area had any idea. When Rocky started winning big stakes races in January, I tipped off the paper. It was quite exciting. It seemed like a movie, and it almost did happen.
I have had my eye on "Pomtizzy" since the day she went up...my question is, there's no "Pomtizzy" anywhere in the TB world...who is she?
Also...should I be worried about her? I don't need another horse, AT ALL. But if her trainer is...umm...less than concerned about the landing spots for their retiring horses, then I may see a tiny TB mare in my future. (Since the 3yo Fingerlakes baby from last year has grown into a GIANT...at least to me, at 5'2''! )
I took Pomtizzy's listing (though we're still trying to get her name spelled correctly) and I do have to say she is adorable! My OTTB mare is that size and I found her thru CANTER years ago & I wouldn't trade her for the world so don't her small size bother you - she's definitely pony cute!
