Summer Bird wrote:I don't get why that would stall owners from sending their horses to Old Friends. I've volunteered there, and they take fantastic care of their horses. They get to be horses by being outside 24/7, although certain ones do come in for the evening. There was no way Charismatic was going to be saved even if there was a night watch person.


I agree with this. Charismatic's time had come and there was nothing anyone could do to prevent it. I feel like Charismatic and Security should be two separate conversations. As Northport mentioned, they did have a break in at the office and a barn fire, so I think increased security is definitely a conversation that should be had. It still wouldn't have affected the outcome for Charismatic, but it would give us a better idea as to when it happened.

Wow, I guess there was absolutely zero interest in him as a stallion overseas. He isn't even that old.

Toast of New York undergoing vet evaluation for possible return to racing. He's been standing stud in Qatar, but has been returned to the UK for the evaluation.

Any updates on Lord Nelson? I'm hoping no news is good news.

Sun King is a gorgeous boy! It's hard to see because he's a totally different colour, but he has the same head and eyes as Charismatic (imo).
Handsome!

He's ribby. I wonder if he's just a hard keeper.

He also just got off the trailer from Louisiana, they're always going to lose a bit of weight shipping. He could be a hard keeper though, but they're never going look their best off the trailer.

Some of them are just ribby and hard keepers forever. Mine is. Also, I'd rather a little rib than some obese stallion - they look worse to me.
