Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Zenyatta... perfection or loser

Zenyatta (foaled April 1, 2004 in Kentucky) is a retired American champion Thoroughbred racehorse, winner of 19 consecutive races in a 20-race career and American record-holder for consecutive victories without defeat in unrestricted races.

Saturday will be the first race in the triple crown bid. Lets look at the 2010 Horse of the Year. A great horse that has more heart than most of the people around her. A topic for Sixty Minutes and an object of much interest if not bets... this girl loves to beat the boys. She would let them strut their stuff and when they had lost their steam she would breeze by them. In my book she is a great horse that has it all... beauty, heart and a real gentleness that comes from being well loved. Her owners and trainer instructed her not only in track manners but in living manners. She is a lady and presents herself as such.

Am I a racing fan? No not really, I watch because I love all horses but the thoroughbred is not one of my favorite breeds. I am a fan of giving credit were credit is due... this is a great horse.
