Jinx is a very fortunate retired racehorse. She obviously was blessed to have an owner or trainer that helped her find another home when she could no longer race. We believe she did some hunting and jumping after she left the track, but she eventually ended up with another thoroughbred mare in a small pasture being fed, but otherwise ignored, until she was donated. Horses need a purpose and a job, a reason to feel needed and appreciated, just like we do.
Like Lexi, she also stops sweating in the summer. Also we are careful never to take her faster than a trot so the chronic tendinitis she has in a back ankle won’t flare up. And finally she has endometriosis, giving her a belly ache occasionally with colic-like symptoms. Like all our horses, she is so worth the extra time and effort we put into caring for her. We all love her gentle soul.
She’s a big girl, with a big trot. You look like you have everything under control, Mr. Terry.
Such a beautiful smile now.
Glad to have her teeth done, but so sad to have our kids sedated and scared. You are a great mama to her, Tracie.
We love having lessons on Miss Jinx. You too, Janet?
We are so glad to have you riding with us whenever you are in town Cindy Sawyer. Miss Jinx thinks so too. Thanks for the grazing opportunity.
So sad. We know how much you miss Miss Jinx when you are away at college Annie Steffey. But summer is coming soon and she can’t wait for you to come home.
