Tristan: 27 year old Thoroughbred
Tristan is a called a Rhone, because his hair is red and white. Tristan was named after the German Opera and love story of Tristan and Isolde. Tristan has a short lived racing career and started 43 times at Monmouth Park. I purchased Tristan when he was 8 years old. His body was broken down, but his spirit was shining bright. Tristan is a typical race horse he likes to move fast and is extremely sensitive to his environment. Tristan is considered a senior now, but even though he has tumors throughout his body and is riddled with arthritis, he still enjoys a nice walk with me in the woods. He has been an instrumental part of my life and continues to nourish my soul each day.
Samson: 12 year old Quarter Horse
Samson is considered a Buckskin, as his hair is the color of honey. I purchased Samson when he 8 years old. He came with the name Scooter but his mane was so thick and he is so strong, he reminded me of the biblical story of Samson and Delilah. Samson has the biggest heart and just wants to please everyone he meets. He is very playful and loves attention. Samson and I enjoy trail riding.
