I was rescued today by Big Dog Ranch Rescue, also known as Weimaraner Rescue Florida. I am just a 9 week old little girl.
4 year old, 16hh Thoroughbred gelding “Return Fire” is now available for adoption from our Marysville, Ohio facility! There is one word for this cute gelding- lazy. His favorite gear is standing still watching the world go by which means no need to teach him to stand quietly at the mounting block-he has that down pat! It’s the going to work after that that he questions the need for. The first few minutes of the ride are spend winding him up and convincing him everything is going to be okay and then he goes to work. We haven’t had the opportunity to ride outside due to weather, but I am sure he will be more forward outdoors where he is in his comfort zone. It all comes down to him being young minded and not very worldly even though he did have 5 starts at the track. He will need a rider that can bring along a very green horse that has great basics, but needs a firm but confident leader. Under saddle he is light to ride and is short backed enough to be balanced and athletic.

I’m headed to Boston tomorrow to visit my daughter, and while I have traveling on my mind I want to tell you about a few horsey trips that I would love to do. My daughter and I used to visit great dude ranches out west every summer – but two trips I recently heard about would require me heading south! One trip I received info on is “Destination Lusitano” – a trip to Interagro Lusitano farm in Itapira, Brazil
By Jan Westmark-Allan A wonderful foal photo sent in by Kristin Zabawa of Oregon. Is there anything cuter than a foal? Tiny whiskers, tiny ears – running, leaping, sleeping, playing with mommy!! I guess the only thing cuter than a real-life foal is a great photo of a foal – which is why Sidelines Magazine is holding the “Who’s Your Daddy” Foal Photo contest.
