Happy Labor Day from Off-TrackThoroughbreds.com. We hope the long weekend offers everyone a chance to appreciate the good things in life, little or great.
In lieu of a story this morning, please enjoy a new photo of Barkinspider, a roadside rescue colt in Louisiana who we reported on last month, and who is now a children’s hunter/jumper pony named Henry.
First rescued by the Lafayette Parish Animal Control last September, he was adopted by Anne Marie P. Muller, an attorney and avid equestrian. In an article last month in Off-TrackThoroughbreds.com, Muller recalls, “What struck me more than anything was how defeated he seemed. After I saw his picture on Facebook, I drove an hour to go see him in person, and while I stood with him in his pasture, he allowed me to hold his head in my hands. I remember thinking, ‘How do you walk away from that?’ If it wasn’t going to be me, who else would it be? I had to take him.”
Congratulations to Muller and Henry for a beautiful new start to life.
