J Man (D'Wildcat x Musical Touch) wasn't all that successful on the track, with 2 wins in 21 starts and $60k in earnings. But his pedigree was fun to dig through, and he sounds like a real character :D

He is available through ReRun: http://www.rerunottb.com/virginia-horse ... ption.html

His 3rd dam is Grade 2 winner Igotrhythm, who is a half-sister to Slew Gin Fizz. His 5th dam is Lillian Russell, a half-sister to Mr. Prospector. That makes his 6th dam the multiple stakes winner Gold Digger. His 9th dam was the fantastic filly Myrtlewood, and his 11th dam is Frizette :D

Be prepared to be entertained for hours by J -cheeky, rambunctious and just a whole load of fun and character rolled into one highly attractive package! Standing 15.3hh and only 5 years old, he is stunning and has an incredible presence about him. He has 3 nice paces that are balanced with cadence and would have potential in all fields due to tremendous courage and athletic ability. He has clean legs and no vices and has been vet evaluated.

Karakorum Legend is just so kind and beautiful looking. I love the write up about him. He has a lovely neck and a long beautiful face. *sigh*

Is the cat included, lol. He really seems like a sweetie.

I don't know how she got this name, but...

Johnny Meatballs (Dunkirk x Flip Cat) is available via New Vocations: http://www.horseadoption.com/horseprofi ... meatballs/

"Johnny Meatballs is a 15.1h lightly raced 3yr old filly (2 maiden claiming starts). She is compact and athletic. She is also a very confident filly and is towards the top of the pecking order in our mare field."


I think her entire family is grey. She's by Dunkirk out of a Maria's Mon mare. Her second dam, Selina Kyle, is a Storm Cat half-sister to Black Tie Affair.

Isn't she a looker?

I think she's gorgeous. It's been a while since I seriously regretted not being able to adopt (have three already and NO empty stalls) though I'd really rather never own another three year old, especially a mare. The only thing worse is a three year old CHESTNUT mare.

Still, I rather fancy having a pretty gray mare named Johnny...

I've been keeping my eye out lately for interesting prospects. A friend of mine just had to retire her OTTB from riding due to some spinal issues, so she's looking around again for a project horse. She's an equine vet to boot, so her horses always get the best of everything. Her mare is now a pasture ornament, but she's hoping to possibly pick up another in the near future. She's in VA, so the adoption groups in OH, KY, and the mid-Atlantic are definitely within her range.
