I'm in so much trouble...

...because I agreed to have two thoroughbreds brought to my barn for me to "try out".  And oh my.  I like them MUCH more than I thought I would.


This is Brego.  He is 3 years old.  Fresh off the track.  He's 17.2 hands.  And he's a love.  I'm in love.  And I haven't even tried him out under saddle yet.


He's gorgeous.  And flashy.  And I can't stop looking at him.  His registered name is Despicable.  But he's oh so not despicable.  


This is Willow.  She's 4 years old and after she was retired from the track, she spent a year hanging out in her vet's pasture.  She had a baby.  And now she's ready to get back to working.

She's 16.2 and it's difficult to get a good picture of her because as soon as she sees you, she's over in your face wanting to nuzzle.  She's a love too.


In fact, these two are arguably the best behaved horses in my barn.


I said I would try them out but if I was interested, I could only keep one.  Well, they're both so fabulous I'm keeping both.  I can't wait to see how they develop...

And I just have to add that this picture (found on Pinterest and here on the web), pretty much describes my husband.  It doesn't describe the horses (other than being OTTB) but it does my husband.  He didn't blink an eye and in fact, helped coordinate the opportunity to try these to out and eventually buy them.


He's the best.
