Like Miss Lexi, she also stops sweating in the summer, called anhydrosis. And finally she has a mild case of endometriosis, giving her a belly ache occasionally, with colic-like symptoms. She loves being on of Chandler’s sister-wives cause it gives her a lot more power in the herd . . . it’s who you know, right? 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.
Miss Jinx, born in 2003, registered name Blue Spectacle, is a very fortunate thoroughbred, bred to race. She obviously was blessed to have an owner or trainer that helped her find another home when her lungs were damaged during early training as a two year old. Since she does not have an aggressive or competitive bone in her body, she probably would not have been very good anyways. 😉 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 for years, until she was donated. Horses need a purpose and a job, a reason to feel needed and appreciated, just like we do.
