Update September 2014: Tannery Town has been hanging out on a farm near the track, still waiting for his new home. We were able to go to this farm and get new photos of him, and you can see what a beautiful horse he is. He is sound and eager for a new person and a job!
This sweet and friendly son of Hook and Ladder impressed us with his alert intelligent expression, pretty head, and solid build. His groom described him as quiet with no vices, and we saw that for ourselves as he got the horse ready for his photos. Tannery had raced just a couple of days before, so the wraps were standard post race care. The groom said he has set osselets on his ankles, but is racing sound on them. It was far too icy for a jog video, but we did watch some race replays to assess the horse’s movement, and he looked like a nice balanced mover. It is time for Tannery to find a new career because since he broke his maiden he has not raced will enough in the next level of competition. We think he could make a fun pleasure or trail horse, and he also seemed quiet and kind enough for a kid’s horse, pony club, or a lesson program after retraining.

As always, a pre-purchase veterinary exam is recommended.
