Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).
Join us for our re-training, rehabbing from laminitis and testing all parts of mixed up horsemanship and partnership, and luck...

Xtra Xtra Breed all about it!!!

So, as you may or may not know.
Lazarus is an OTTB
A darling angel boy stemmed from once being a rudely mannered and untrusting track boy.
BOOM! Celeb Pony 
However as glamorous as many non horse people know, there are UGLY sides to being a horse on the track. 
Many of them are viewed as $$$ only, and once they can't preform, they are out.
To where?
Many don't care what happens to them.  
For those OTTB organizations that do care, they CARE
Thanks to countless organizations like CANTER, New Vocations, ReRun, TRF, and many more, these athletes are finding homes for their 2nd career as MUCHO loved ponees.
Take these OTTB's and their mega loving Mamma's for example:
Foggy (one of three; Sovey and Pie are Juliette's other two lovely OTTB's)
Miss Denali being loved through retirement
Lucy the wild child OTTB and Kate 
Gentleman Miles (and cousin of Laz!!) and Sarah

Not only are they Mega Awesome OTTB Mom's, they, in addition to Lazarus, are my Tshirt muses. 
I sent each one a free T to have as a "SHOP IS OPEN" and a thank you for being the great OTTB Moms they are.  
Trust me, it was hard to pick ONLY those few..there are many of you that are just as deserving

Without further ado, our biznaz
Laz and I are making T-shirst for those that are PROUD Mamma's (or Dads) of the OTTB and want to flaunt it.

  3. Awesome! This is wonderful! Even though I don't have an OTTB, I will be buying one :)

  4. Adorable! Can I get a special order for the larger equestrian 1 next time you order more shirts????? I will totally represent!

  5. No shipping to Canada?? I am heartbroken....I am the number one OTTB fan here, and my good friend is the Queen of the OTTbs up here. Can I special order some to Ontario>??

  6. @OTB, I emailed you so you let me know what you would like and I'm HAPPY to make you a T!
    @BeBe-oh, I luv my Canadians! I'm going to post office tomorrow, let me get shipping rate and I'll be happy to mail it there too!

  7. Kristen!!! You are so wonderful to horses and people. I adore Laz's racing photo - still got that wild mane! Wow!

    The shirt is terrific and you and Laz are something else to donate to CANTER. Perfect!

    I will be ordering for sure! We had such fun with ours - great big laughs today over the Ninja rider photos - what was I thinking? Wouldn't a normal person just take of the black face mask for pictures?

    Great idea and good luck - it will be a grand success!

  8. I'm so honored you picked cousin Miles and me:) Pics coming this weekend!

  9. My company ships to Canada all the time Kristen and it's not expensive at all. And send as a gift, so they don't pay duty. But under 25.00 dollars I don't think they pay duty anyway? You will figure it out!! Very cool and have tons of fun!!!!!!

  10. Excellent! Let me know how I can special order one to Ontario...!
