The Hana aka Uncle Bus
I just got info from the Jockey Club today about my gelding Ben, infamously known as The Hana. He was bred at South River Ranch Inc. in KY; sire Cahill Road and dam Slight in the Rear.

He raced as 'Uncle Bus' and had a total of 39 starts, running until the ripe old age of 7 and earning nearly $50,000.

He made it out to the east coast and now lives in the midwest. His history is kind of a mystery, but at least 7 years of his life is now accounted for! I think he may have had a stint with CANTER at some point around 2003.

Has anyone ever come across him? Any info would be great!

Buying off the track
Normally I'd post here from my horse journal, tb_love, but I'm not actually a member of this comm there, so I'm gonna be lazy. ;)

Anyhow, for all you OTTB owners that have bought straight off the track, what do you look for in an H/J prospect? Apart from the obvious has all its body parts/doesn't have gleaming red eyes, horns, and a forked tail. I HAVE two OTTB's, but neither were bought straight off the track, so this could be a new experience for me.

Current Mood: bouncy

Sleep well, Jacques.
Jacques didn't make it. He was rushed to a vet hospital this morning, and pronounced brain dead. His owners kindly put him down.

Please keep them in your prayers.

Sam
Here's some pictures of Sam from Monday. He's leaving tomorrow to go to my trainer in VA and get sold, so here's hoping she likes how he goes when he gets there!

Thank you all for your suggestions! I spoke with the trainer at the barn last night and we decided the mare just needs more muscle tone. Onyx was so cute last night when I rode her that the trainer offered a few suggestions after giving her lesson. I guess it is going to just take a little time and lots of exercise. At least I have a horse that is trying and not fighting.

An update:
I know who Jules is, thanks to the generosity of belle7067
Jules is "True's Bucky".

I've added him to allpedigree.com Let it be known he has War Admiral, War Relic, Tom Fool, and Buckpasser on BOTH SIDES. Boo yea for inbreeding!

http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/trues+bucky

I've been running through the apartment screaming (my roomie knows more about racehorses than me), so she helped me go through and figure out who was who. Plus, it printed funny from my email, so had to draw lines to figure out who was by who.

OMG.

http://www.pedigreequery.com/trues+bucky

That's him on the TB pedigree thing, and yes, I'm listed as his owner.

I'm going to give him the other half of the 5lb bag tomorrow after our (going to be) glorious ride, which comes right before that horrible bean removal.

OH yea, the vet called today to say dr moore won't be coming. Then they called back to say vanroekel would be, which is even better, because he's the one who does the acupuncture, so I can talk to him while he's there!

Hopefully he takes pity on a poor college student, helps me out a bit.

WHEEEEEE!

Plus, I'm going to have the vet change his name on his Coggins next time around. I can't tell you how exhilarating it is to have this information, even though it doesn't change anything (except his birthdate, in my mind).

Still, it says he's unraced.. so why the hell would they pinfire him?! Is it common to pinfire an unproven horse?

Question for the Group
Hello! I am a newbie here. I have a training question. I have recently purchased an older (11 going on 12)off the track mare. She has had very little training and tends to throw her head up into a strange position when I put contact on the bit. We are using a KK Ultra snaffle or a happy mouth full cheek bit. She is not fighting with me it is just a pose she likes. She will round out and use her body correctly for a few seconds here and there. If I "play" with the bit with a wide hand position then she will put her head down and start to bend correctly. I have only achieved this in the walk and trot. How do I keep her consistent and is this a common problem? I have ridden a number of OTTB's and never have encountered this. She is starting to learn to stretch into the bit and is generally a very good girl. This mare is a little too sensitive for draw reins according to her last trainer and I generally disapprove of them. I do lunge her and she is starting to use her muscles properly. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Also, if you have any suggestions for books on training the OTTB that would be very helpful.

I'm back..
sorry to post again so soon.. I have a question about finding info on my horse.

He's a 16 year old TB, and I don't have a clue what his real name is, where he was born, who his parents are, and if he raced.

I know his tattoo number, am aware I can pay to find out info. He's not on allbreed.

THe name on his coggins is "Twilight Buck". No dice there. Any suggestions?

16 year old OTTB
I have a 16 year old OTTB who has spent his life doing dressage. Not sure of his history on the track, except that he must have one, as he's been pinfired.

Right now he has soundness issues due to muscle problems, but is still serviceable. He's trained up through 2nd level, but appears to not have his flying lead changes.

However, during a gallop the other day, he did a change.

WHAT?

Not sure if one translates to the other, or if he really doesn't know his dressagey lead changes, or if he's just being a weenie... any experience?

had to vent.
ok all you TB lovers. how sick are you of hearing people diss thoroughbreds??? im sorry, i know this may sound stupid, but i swear i hear more negative comments about TBs than any other breed... except maybe arabs. i own a TB gelding and absolutely ADORE him. he is NOT "crazy" "nuts" "dumb" etc. etc. these are all things ive heard other people say about thoroughbreds... sure he can be forward some days, but then there are also days when hes just as lazy and pokey as the quiet guys.

i hadnt had much experience with thoroughbreds before i bought my guy, and now 3 years later i am so glad that he was the one i got. hes smart, willing, and FORGIVING of my mistakes. a lot of times TBs can be very sensitive when handled or ridden, but that to me makes them more interesting and intelligent. just because some people want a slower ride does not mean that the entire breed has to be classified as insane.

grrrrrrrrr.

Things every ottb seller loves to hear from (knowledgable) someone who's looking at the horse:

"So, it's a warmblood cross?"
"Uh, hope. Thoroughbred."
"Right, but, crossed with what?"
"No, thoroughbred as in 'from the track'."

Alphy was like, "Don't act so surprised. I am obviously the shizzle."
I was like, (quietly to Alphy), "Haha, I can't wait til he rides you and tries to get you to go."

Wish us luck!

I said, "Give me three weeks."
Remember Sammy?.

His three week anniversary with us is today, and he has improved by miles and miles.
As of now we have installed:
1. a slightly rough clip job
2. teeth done
3. shoes
4. 100 more pounds
5. a canter (as opposed to a run/scramble/flail)
6. which follows a canter depart (as opposed to 8 legs at once jackhammering down the longside)
7. the ability to maintain balance in turns and circles at the above mentioned gait
8. we no longer snorkel, we are starting to carry ourselves and be soft over our topline.

Follow the cut for photographic evidence. (Not the best quality, the camera has a hard time inside.)
I present to you a 'whole new horse'!Collapse )

Hi all, I'm new here. I'm Danielle, I'm 17 years old and currently own 3 ottb's.

Joy is an 11 year old gray mare who we took right off the track 5 years ago. We let her have pasture rest, we had a baby out of her by an APHA stallion. Then we brought her up as a riding horse. All we really did with her was trail riding, pleasure riding, and a few open/schooling shows until this spring. I had lost my Paint mare during the winter so I think that's why I then attached myself to Joy. We are currently training in dressage (we'd be showing training level but we bred her so I'm not doing anything with her this winter) and have schooled to 3'3" this summer. She is your typically hot thoroughbred, my sister is afraid to ride her since we started jumping but she's not a bad horse. She loves jumping so much.

She is now bred to a Percheron stallion for a June 2006 baby. Then after the baby I'm hoping to start showing her in dressage.
Joy. Photo heavy, +12Collapse )

Malakai is a 5 year old gelding who I just got about a month ago. He was severly lame in the spring when we first saw him, he was on mostly stall rest, some pasture, over the summer and they raced him again in October even though he was still somewhat lame. They ended up pulling him up during the race and then they were done with him. He came to me hurting so bad he could hardly walk. Since he's been here in just the month he's doing so much better. What he has is ocelots (a type of calcium deposit). The vet said he may not turn out to be a jumper but could still be a good hunter or dressage horse, or just a trail horse if he can't do that. We had him x-rayed and he looked pretty good, so time will only tell.

Malakai +4Collapse )

And Hagor hasn't even arrived yet. He is a 12 year old bay gelding. He was raced until he was 10 with 19 wins and $315,000 in earnings. Then he was retired and became a trail horse. I'm not exactly sure of his whole story, but he ended up at a TB rescue and the rescue placed him with a woman we know (through dogs). It was meant to be her daughters horse, who is 12 years old and only knows walk/trot. What I don't understand is why a rescue would place an ottb as a beginners horse? These people have only had him for 6 weeks and are scared of him. He's not a mean or bad horse, he's just a typical thoroughbred. In my opinion it isn't good to combine an ottb with inexperienced horse people. We went to see him, he's a real sweetheart, and since they are desperate to get him out of there we made them an offer and they said yes. He'll be here Friday. Unfortunetly when I went to see him I didn't get to ride, but from what I could see from lunging him he had really nice gaits. I'm excited to get him here. (But I'm not calling him Hagor ;o) He will have a name change).

Hagor +4Collapse )

Along with the thoroughbreds I also own 2 paints (Star Star2) and (Bailey), a trakehner gelding (Dax) and 2 miniatures (Fancy and Misty).

And I will stop boring ya'll with my ramblings. But I will definatly be around with many pictures. :o)

I met my new horse for the first time yesterday.
My trainer and I got him as a trade for a Welsh pony that we couldn't get sold. She picked him out in VA and sent him up to me to do up, and my job is to turn him into an A-Circuit Children's Hunter and get him sold. He's a 5yo ottb who had a job as a trail horse before she found him. It took a while for him to make it all the way from VA, so I was really excited to finally meet him.

Meet J. Samuel, my new show horse:)Collapse )
