Whitmore sounds like he is loved and could even be a "pasture pet", if no injury. As a gelding, cannot breed, so wish he could be one in the program for retired racing TBs

If he had an injury he’ll be on stall rest for a bit, then can decide what discipline he would best be suited for. The Moquetts are wonderful horse people, I look forward to his next career!

 You can tell how much he is loved. Mr. Moquett can hardly talk about him without getting choked up.

Thank goodness he was not severely injured- I know they will find the right situation for him.

Another article, he’ll go into the RRP and become a jumper, Laura will ride him. She’d like to keep him on track as a pony, but he’s too ornery for that- Go Whitmore!

yes.....and thanks to Joel for pulling him up,as a fracture, indeed......minor, but still required surgery

Great horse, who never gave up
