Retired Thoroughbred Racehorse for Adoption - Springmoor

What Your Newly Adopted Racehorse Wants You to Know!

Bay Thoroughbred Racehorse Racehorse Adoption Article
What Your Newly Adopted Racehorse Wants You to Know! (As Told By Your Retired Racehorse)
By Lisa Molloy of the ReRun Thoroughbred Adoption Program (originally published in 2012)

I have been shod and pampered my entire life. I've walked on manicured pastures and lawns, imported euro footing that costs more than my trainers house and rubber brick aisles. Pulling my shoes off can leave me looking like I've had a run in with Tonya Harding and her cohorts - crippled! The only rocks I've ever seen before are the ones that were on my donor's wife's hand. If you wish to pull my shoes off, please think ahead - ask the farrier not to trim me so short the first few times and leave plenty of toe, try to plan on doing it when the ground is soft and most importantly, for the first few weeks please treat my feet to a twice daily brushing of Venice turpentine. It's cheap, it's easy and it will leave me with soles like titanium - well almost!
