Nice short video of Blind Luck at the farm. Includes glimpses of her foals. The GC colt looks like a runner to me! :-) And BL looks fantastic. Apparently she's very much a boss mare -- with horses and humans -- too.

She is funny. Very rarely have I seen a horse who actually seemed to be relishing the sale experience. Her handler (Taylor Made puts just 1 person on their big mares) was pretty cool with her, too. He let her stand around and accept treats and bask in the attention when she wasn't being shown.

ETA: Her colt is lovely.

She looks great. Good to see she hasn't lost any of that fire.

I remember Jerry saying that she spent a lot of time "rearranging" her stall -- and woe unto anyone who came in to "fix" it. ;-)

She has such a great walk, so athletic. I can't wait to see that Giant's Causeway colt run.

Ha. She really is a character. Definitely not a pet, but polite with her admirers.

It seems that her colt is with a nurse mare? BL seemed to be without her foal in the paddock. Correct me if I am wrong; since there's no subtitles in the video.

That other chestnut mare in the paddock with Blind Luck, when they're standing around the waterer, looks a lot like Lady Tak.

Loved Lady Tak! Going to go watch right now to see.

ETA: It does looks like her- wish that shot was just a bit longer.
