Not Gonna Happen

September 1, 2022

“I had been looking for an OTTB to resale with no intention to attend the Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover or add another horse to my collection. I had received a message from a friend looking to rehome a two-year-old gelding who was not interested in being a racehorse. He was small, but very willing to please. I brought him home and let him be a horse for a few weeks and then I started his retraining process.

Once I restarted him, I noticed that his personality and work ethic was something that was hard to come by and was going to be hard to resell him just because of the way he tries so hard to please! Once I put a few weeks of training on him, I decided that it was going to be his time to shine and decided to enter him in the Thoroughbred Makeover.

We have done a little bit of everything from attending jackpot barrel races where he is currently winning our fifth division to attending a rodeo in front of hundreds of people. Our next challenge is to attend a trail competition and see how he handles all of the obstacles.

Most days, Mouse spends hanging out with my boyfriend‘s mare and the cats that roam the farm. He enjoys peppermint treats and his revitavet laser therapy sessions!”
