“Snip” is reported to be one of the sweetest horses her owner has ever dealt with. Snip spent a few weeks at her family’s farm recently, recovering from a heel bulb abscess, and she reports that the mare loved nuzzling with cats and dogs and people, and always stood perfectly for the vet and for having her wrap changed, and soaked up all the attention she could get. Snip is back at the track because the farm is overflowing, so she really needs to find a new home as soon as possible. She has old osselets on one ankle, and her owner recently had it x-rayed and reports that there are no other issues. Snip should be fine for flat work and with her quiet sweet laid back attitude should be a great trail riding partner. Because Snip was unshod and still recovering from her abscess, she could not be jogged for a video. But we watched videos of some of Snip’s winning races, and we observed a fluid gallop and a gorgeous flat kneed light trot with great reach. With her movement, we can see her doing dressage.Snip has been a good race horse, with 6 wins and 20 top three finishes with over $125,000 in earnings in her 56 race career, and she finished third in a stakes race at Fort Erie lasts summer. An Ontario bred, she is a daughter of Canadian Triple Crown winner Wando, who is a son of Langfuhr from the Danzig line. Snip’s dam is a daughter of Dixie Union out of a multiple stakes winning mare. With her solid bodied build and pedigree, Snippets of Time is an excellent sport horse broodmare prospect.
