Meet the droolworthy No Lime — big, grey, gorgeous, fabulous mover, sweet and quiet temperament! Photos just do not do this one justice — you have to see him in person to appreciate how gorgeous he is. Our volunteers who saw him all wanted to covet him for themselves, but since our barns and budgets are full, you get the chance to grab this beautiful horse to pursue your sport horse dreams. No Lime’s owner brought him over to where we were photographing another horse for a different trainer, and No Lime stood around so quietly just waiting for his turn that we all turned around and said “who is that!” When we heard his name, we immediately started making Margarita jokes…. and then we learned that he got his name because his original owner also owned a tequila distillery! The contact person for No Lime, who has often ponied him in the mornings and afternoons, tells us that she has adored this horse for the two years she has been working with him. She raved about how good he is to gallop, and to pony, and to handle and work around. She says he is a very sensible, kind, quiet, and friendly horse who never does anything wrong. She says he is sound but noted that he has a slight filling in his left front lower suspensory area that is only apparent when flexed and that he has had for a while and has raced on with no issues. He has no limitations for any new discipline at any level you want to go to. As much as we admired No Lime’s beauty while he posed for his photos, our admiration increased when we saw him jog. He jogged quietly on a loose lead and displayed very good movement, with a nice overtrack at the walk and hind end loft, front shoulder reach, and a natural tendency to stretch his neck and head down at the trot. No Lime has 4 wins in 35 starts, but in his 7 races this year he has only managed one third, so his owner, who is also a groom at the track, realizes that it is time to let him find a new career. No Lime is by Flashback, who is a son of Tapit out of a mare from Mr. Greeley/Gone West Lines. No Lime’s dam is by During, who is from Runaway Groom/Blushing Groom lines.
