Howdy Evil Dogooder, First of all, kudos to you for helping care for these magnificent warriors in the racing game. They can be challenge because they are not treated most of the time as "pets". They come with baggage and it's hard to sort thru that. There a website called "Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance". The site is pretty extensive and is on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram too. There are blogs as well. I had a Warmblood/Thoroughbred rescue 2yr old for 3yrs. She loved the attention and care I gave her-she wasn't off the track but all horses respond to love and attention. I was able to break her to ride and got her gentled enough I gave her to my best friend as a birthday gift for her and her grandkids.(Was going thru a divorce). There wasn't anything she wouldn't do for you. She always wanted to please. If you've found a connection to this horse it may be worth pursuing. There's a lot of horses out there who are not lucky to find a caring and Good home. Good Luck and update us how things are going! Here's me and my current Bud, Maar-been my shooting horse for 15yrs now! He's a 20yr old Arabian.
