And a happy ending for you…Most of us who watch racing have seen a horse break down on the track, and even if they can get up and walk, a lot of them do not make it or are swiftly sent to kill. That was almost the case with a colt named Lord Gabriel who broke his coffin bone in a race at age three. Another race trainer saw the accident and decided to buy him and rehab him after finding out the owner planned to send him to auction. They rehabbed him successfully and he made a successful return to racing before retiring. He was gelded and sold and became an eventer.

Many years later, they got the call that he needed a home once more. At age 17, he came back to them and became their daughter’s new show horse. This picture was taken at his last show. He has retired and now hangs around the barn begging for jelly donuts. He will be with them forever. How gorgeous is he?

found this on Fugly sorry i cannot post picture...
