One of the real joys of rehabbing Thoroughbreds off the racetrack is letting them be horses again. If you consider how they are isolated and put into stalls to be trained as yearlings it is no wonder some of them behave like visitors from another planet. Things that most horses always have like turnouts in green grass and the company of other horses are a rare treat to a horse coming from the confinement of the track. While our horses are waiting for adoption we let them have some fun. Mentally it great for them, but learning to play together is also serious education and prepares them to calmly ride in company or be turned out with other horses. Here are adoptable horses Don'tbeatattletale and Sea Kris.
Don'tbeatattletale shows off his moves!
And nothing beats the sheer joy of a run in the grass.
