Thank you so much for all the support you have shown during 2012. It’s been a great year for the growth of our blog, and we owe so much to every one of you.
As we usher in 2013, we do it with the strong purpose of helping with words and stories to continue to lift up the image of the once-maligned Off-Track Thoroughbred, and demonstrate their courage, beauty and talent as sporthorses.
As we look forward to the year ahead, we want to say a special thank you to those who have helped this blog so much in 2012.
Horse-advocate Deborah Jones of California, and Thoroughbred trainer Lisa Molloy have provided invaluable assistance in story coverage.
Jen Roytz of Three Chimneys Farm has offered great story suggestions, and the veterinarians of world-renowned Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital have been tremendously helpful in providing answers on horse health in an ongoing Veterinary Answers column.
Jessica Paquette of Suffolk Downs has been supportive from the beginning, and new friends, like Ann Banks of Kentucky, John R. Murrell of Texas, and Mindy Lovell of Ontario have been tremendously helpful.
Then there are the amazing organizations who I’ve had the pleasure to work with! New Vocations and Re-Run, Inc., CANTER, Akindale Thoroughbred Rescue, Steuart Pittman and the Retired Racehorse Training Project, Old Friends and Exceller Fund, and I could name many more, have all made it easy to find a great horse to write about!
Thank you to those who have been with me since the beginning, in March 2010, and to all who have found their way here since.
A Happy and Healthy New Year to Everyone (and our beloved Thoroughbreds)!
