Nothing to it anymore

Not a Thoroughbreed

Today was a tour of Kentucky horse country. I now know that horse racing does not fit my financial condition. We visited Keeneland Race track, two farms and a retirement farm. The barns are nicer than our trailer, home and all known friends homes combined. We saw the grave of Seattle Slew as well as the farm where he was born. We saw horses working out at Keeneland and also a $700,000.00 outrider horse. My bride, who has a fear of horses, fed several at the retirement farm. You will note the progression of her courage in the pics.
