    Lola the Retired Racehorse Chapter 9 “The Final Countdown”

    It’s hard to remember that she has only been off the track for 12 months and that she has been in my life for just 11 of those.  I can’t believe how fast time has gone by and all that we have accomplished together.

    Because Rudy needed something on his feet to absorb concussion and allow his suspensory ligament to heal, he began to wear his Scoot twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
    All horses have a unique talent when it comes to hurting themselves, even if the people in charge of caring for them take every measure to keep them safe. It's remarkable. And...
