My horsey nephew, Ice on Fire – aka Ice, Icey-pants, Mr. Sassafras – came to the ranch for a visit with his mom, my dear friend Alice, in September. Ice is a 5-year-old OTTB (Off the Track Thoroughbred) who has been Alice’s pride and joy for the last three years. One of Ice’s joys in life is playing in the stream of a hose. Such simple pleasures! May you keep that youthful enthusiasm into old age, Nephew! His facial expressions of delight, wonder, and bliss were something to behold – Enjoy!
There are many OTTBs who need new homes when they retire from racing. These horses can make wonderful partners for tactful, knowledgeable riders. For more information, click here.
