When the trainer messaged us about this cute stocky guy, she wrote in all caps: “BARN/BACKSIDE FAVORITE OF ALL TIMES!!!” She describes him as a loveable ham, who just loves people and attention. We agree — he is adorable, and loved our attention as we took his photos and told him how cute he is. Racing clearly is not his game — in three starts he has been beaten a total of 80 lengths. With his light and lofty movement with enticing suspension, we can see him excelling in dressage, but he has unlimited potential for any new discipline. He currently has a skin condition that the vet thinks is a reaction to something in the track environment, possibly in the track surface since he developed the rash after he started working out on the main track in May. It is clearing up and does not bother Mittens. The trainer reports that while he was on the farm over the winter his coat was fine. Newport Mittens is by Lookin at Lucky, who is by Smart Strike out of a Belong to Me mare. Lookin at Lucky is deservedly becoming a popular sport horse sire, known for siring horses with good brains and friendly temperaments. Mittens’ dam is by City Zip.
The best of homes is a must for this beloved barn pet!
