Sounds like a dream trip, Bal!
And congrats on your 50th, what a beautiful thought having a partner that understands and loves us for so many years!

Gun Runner looks wonderful. Stallion Manger is smitten with him - good natured, compliant, professional. He feels the same way about Will Take Charge. My husband was quite smitten with him. Said he was like Arnold Scwartzenegger when he was Mr. Universe. A very good looking, imposing horse. They didn't take out Palace Malice. He's grumpy and not fond of people.

California Chrome is so well groomed, he looks like he stepped out of a painting. I don't believe he gets much exercise - not much muscling.

Can’t wait to see how the WTC -Stage Magic develops at Glennwood Farm. He is supposed to be even bigger than Justify was at the same age.

Was it on TBC that Lost Bus was bred to Will Take Charge? I should have asked Grant. If so, that's going to be a humongous foal.

Wise Dan at 1305 - 5 lbs. more than JUSTIFY. He looks amazing and is just as sweet, gentle and friendly as he was the last time I saw him. He and his brother, Successful Dan, loved the Mrs. Pastures "cookies" we brought them.

Successful Dan - he's HUGE

And then there's his "little" brother :-)

1305 pounds!? Wow. I never thought of 'Dan as being a big horse, so retirement must really be suiting him. :lol:
Love the photo of him reaching to gently take a treat, with such a soft expression on his face. <3

The Dans look great... a tad chubby but they're allowed to be ;)
