Cigar is easily my favorite thoroughbred gelding, a close second is Funny Cide who I also saw. 

^They were both so, so sweet when I met them! I need to go back sometime..

Happy birthday to the greatest horse to ever live, Secretariat. God’s horse was born 42 years ago today.

Happy birthday, Big Red.

Happy 44th Birthday to Big Red!

"More than three thousand years ago a man named Job complained to God about all his troubles and the Bible tells us that God answered. Do you give the horse its strength or clothe its neck with a flowing mane? Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting? He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength and charges into the fray. He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing, He does not shy away from the sword. The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground. He cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds. "

-Secretariat (2010)
