The Old Men and their Fan Club

The Old Men and their Fan Club

After sharing all of these “before” pictures of horses at auction, I am proud to share a few “after” shots. Hip # 455 and 454 are two Standardbred geldings, possibly in their early 20s. These two horses touched me the most of all the horses I’ve photographed since January and it was a delight to see them together, enjoying their hay in the New Jersey sunshine this weekend. Through the efforts of Anouk Busch (a Standardbred trainer) and Horse Rescue United, these horses were purchased from the Camelot Auction and are resting here in New Jersey until they ship this week to Bright Futures Farm.

Both horses were happy to play the part of Equine Ambassador when some neighbors stopped by to visit and hear their story. They also have their own fan club on Facebook (“the old men fan club).

    Yay, standies! They look like they’ve seen some long miles on bad roads–hopefully, they will enjoy soft pastures and sunlight from now on.

    Poor old fellas. It’s nice to see them get a nice retirement.
