Today is Slice of Life Tuesday – the weekly writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”
I am now a horse owner – but without all of the work. I own 1/100th of a share in a lovely two year old filly. It was a bucket list item and now it has been achieved.
Saturday, my husband and I joined some of the other 80 or so owners at Fort Erie racetrack barns to meet our new filly. The group has just recently been formed by two former women jockeys, with the goal to race her at Woodbine.
There was a contest to name her and we learned Saturday that her new name is now “Queen’s Honor.” We got photos with her and met some of the other owners at a dinner. Quite a different adventure indeed.
There will be monthly meetings, newsletters and a chance to watch her in the future. We are learning more each month.
This is a very interesting adventure indeed! Good luck. I look forward to reading more about your Queen.
Thanks. It is an interesting adventure indeed.
How exciting. My father loved horse racing, but I never took an interest in it. Hope she does well in the races.
My husband’s father and grandfather bred and raised horses and we go to Saratoga every summer.
She is so beautiful, Bev! Congratulations! I hope you get brushing rights!
Thanks Carol. At least I got to touch her Saturday.
Congratulations! I love horses too. I’ll keep my eye open for her.
Thanks Linda. It will be a fun adventure for sure.
What an adventure this horse will take you on! Good luck!
Thanks Elsie. Not sure how well she will do – but it is more the idea of it all and meeting new people.
