OK, more horse stuff. Lol
My sister adopted a second horse from LongRun. It's a thoroughbred retirement association that places horses who are retired from the track and saves them from an ignoble end.
Whiskey Spice (Whiskey Wisdom is his sire) aka "Pretty Boy Floyd" is a three year old 16.2 h thoroughbred. He is built like a warmblood, very wide in the chest and butt ... lovely movement, beautiful walk, big floaty trot, very athletic canter. He's got lots of bone and good feet.
The other males on the farm were screaming at him as he got off the trailer but he just tossed his head, bowed up his neck and strutted his way around farm yard. (She's keeping him separate from the other horses until they get used to him.)
He seems very kind and sensible even though he is just a baby.

In the first picture, he is with my sister on Saturday, just off the trailer. In the second picture, she introduces him to the boss.

No, Longrun had him gelded before she agreed to adopt him ... keeping more than one stallion on a farm is very difficult. Stallions have to be completely on their own at all times and they're always hard to handle. Unless you run a huge operation with a lot of stable hands, it's just too dangerous.

I don't know the proper way to ask since I'm learning at your knee Jess, will she be able to ride him or did she save him because he needed saving? He is gorgeous though. Love his coloring and I love how you described him tossing his head and struting about. I could visualize it so clearly.

Holy crap Jessie, I was JUST thinking about this thread today while I was driving. Jinx I was thinking how we should be listing our "things we are grateful for" again at AABB... because I for one have bit down lately (for no good reason) and I supposedly this is good for our mental health.

I am thankful to have a friend like Jess who has the same thought as me on the same day! happy dance 2

Oh yes, she'll be riding him. His was raced as a two year old so he's had a saddle and jockey on him. They left him intact because they wanted to breed him if he was fast enough. (Due to his famous sire and his good looks. Lol)
He was fast, but not fast enough, (thus the owners get rid of them as three year olds). She'll train him for two or three years as a hunter, jumper or eventing horse, (depending on how he responds) and then sell him. Training an ex-race horse isn't for a novice though, at first, they tend to just want to lower their head, flatten out and run like Hell. She won't try to get on him for a few weeks ... she'll just work him out on a lunge line, massage him, talk to him and get him hooked on ginger snaps. Lol
Once he gets to know her, she'll get on him.

That sounds so exciting. If you don't mind, would you continue to post about his/their progress? I am aware that race horses are very spirited. Your sister must be a horse whisperer she has such success with her mounts.

I couldn't find an appropriate thread so this one will do. Lol

One of my sisters is in Newfoundland and she and her DH are staying for a couple of days with his sister and BIL. The sister and BIL have two Newfoundland dogs and they took this picture of Farley swimming in the ocean. The capelin have come in and Farley has one in his mouth and is determined to bring it home to Mama. Lol

Jessie!!!! Great pic! Newfs are an amazing breed. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a fool for Newfys. They're such great, strong swimmers with natural rescue instincts.
<-------Hence the pic of mine.
Newfys are like potatoe chips.... you can't have just one. And, since she's staying with them, did your Sister happen to mention that Newf fur was just another condiment and drool is a staple. lol
Thanks for posting it. I have a lot of Newfy friends with pics like this, they're all so gorgeous. I had to keep deleting parts of my post so it wasn't very.... wordy. Because I could go on & on & on about them. dance

I have question about newfys,

years ago hubby was doing work for people who hd 2 near Mphs. They stayed outside in fence back yard. It was summer and temps near 100. They had fresh water, thing where they could evrn turn faucet on themselves, But hubby was upset about it, said the deep south is no place for them. They should be in cool climate unless you keep them in air cond.

Was he right?

She definitely mentioned that! Drool and fur galore! (and Farley seems to think he's a lap dog and he's also under the impression that my sister and her DH want to share their bed with him. Lol)

Yep, they should be in cooler weather. They have 2 types of fur, an inner fuzzy type fur for insulation and an outer fur that repels water. The inner fur can keep them warm & somewhat cool but not enough. They much prefer the snow. And they need air in that kind of heat. Especially if there is no way for them to cool off. Mine stayed in A/C when we were in Florida a couple weeks ago except when we took him out to the beach. Other wise it's just to miserable for them in that heat. I always wanted to contact the Newfoundland club in Fl. just to see what they do down there for their Newfs.

that's funny. Mines a lap dog too & we can't sleep with out him either. They're big hugable teddy bears. I go through a vacuum every other year because of the fur. lol

They even look alike. lol
Since you asked if they were could weather dogs, I found this video about a Canadian Newf from animal planet about their fur, it was made for icy water & such. I just put the link in case you were interested.

thanks, with dial up I rareley have patience to upload 3min vid takes hour+, drives me nutz,

But years ago neighbors had another type of cold weather dog. Big, all white, anyway some people save their hair and use it to make sweaters with. Said they were very warm and water resistant. And for life of me can't remember name of the breed.
