Majestic Cause (Majestic Warrior x Counter Cat, by Hennessy) was never off the board in 5 starts for Stonestreet.

He was a $42k weanling, a $137k yearling, and a $700k two year old in training.

So here you go! For $400 you can have a very cute, near bomb-proof partner in crime that cost other people almost $900,000 :lol:

And this 2 yr old unnamed kiddo (Stay Thirsty x Lights Off Annie) is a half brother to current Repole stakes winner Clipthecouponannie.

Not sure what the story is on why they aren't pursuing him as a racing prospect, but he's so freaking adorable!

He will try to walk behind you with his nose on your shoulder or in your ponytail (if you have one), which is sooo sweet but we have to remind him of personal space before he gets too big! He just wants to be your pocket pet. He is a wiggle worm for grooming and wants to put his nose on you all the time, his ground manners are a work in progress. He is green to herd dynamics and sometimes does not understand that other geldings cherish their personal space. Lito wants to be everybody’s friend! Its all part of growing up. He will certainly add a youthful excitement to any turnout group as he loves to tear across the field and kick up his heels. He does not have any stable vices.

Casting (Quest x Risen Starlet, by Secretariat) wasn't the fastest on the track, with most of his 22 starts in claiming company, but I'm terribly sentimental about his physicality and his pedigree.

Casting is out of Risen Starlet (Secretariat x Break Over). Risen Starlet's dam, Break Over, is a full sister to Ribbon, the dam of Risen Star :D

I'm sure there's a less confusing way to word that, but... I NEED A BARN, STAT.

He is cute, and sounds like an absolute gem of a horse.

This thread always makes me sad that I don't have a trust fund.

I guess I could sell my eggs.

Speak Logistics is up for adoption, but unfortunately as a companion only. He was retired last year, but apparently had a "non-racing injury" that will keep him from a second career as a riding horse. He's a handsome guy, though. Hope he finds a good home!

Cozzetti is also for sale in Smith's Grove, KY (per a post on FB, not sure I can share it--or figure out how haha). He's been retired and retrained over the last few years and used as a lesson horse :D

So if anyone is looking for a pasture puff, here's one: http://www.horseadoption.com/horseprofi ... sys-storm/. Her dam is half to London Bridge and her female line traces to Magical Fantasy and Altibr.

Also, he doesn't have his own page yet, but Pleuven is being rehabbed by New Vocations too. He won the G2 Wise Dan in 2016 and won over $300k.

Then there's Bishop of Derry (Giant's Causeway x Yesterday) - https://www.thoroughbredadoption.com/bi ... aka-wyatt/. He was a $500k Keeneland September purchase. His dam hasn't produced much herself, but she's a graded stakes winner and he's related to Quarter Moon, Thomas Chippendale (IRE), Betterbetterbetter (IRE) (the $5.2m Mandy Pope purchase), Albanova (GB), and Alborada (GB).

We Found Love - https://www.midatlantichorserescue.org/ ... ndLove.htm. He's half to Down.

Interesting! She's up for adoption because she has a genetic abnormality that won't let her get pregnant (and possibly she doesn't even get in heat). She has a kind face.

Wondered why she wasn’t a broodmare. She is lovely, has a very kind face.

I really love him. He's a good size for me and I'm an intermediate rider. :lol: Too bad there's no way I could have a horse right now.

I’ve got one, but I’d have 20 if I could! Shopping is fun!
