sweet tea after arrival

Sweet Tea on the day of her arrival.

 

We took in Southern Sweet Tea the day after the Kentucky Derby, in 2012.  She was 6.

Sweet Tea's racing career ended when it was discovered that she had fractured sesamoids and a chip in her ankle. Her owner, Angie, unlike many racehorse owners, wanted Sweet Tea to have a good life.  She had surgery done to fix the leg and then boarded her while she healed.

However, she couldn't afford to keep her boarded long-term, so contacted us.

Sweet Tea actually has grown since arriving at FTH - shocking everyone. 

Angie comes to visit when she can.
