I know horses generally do OK in cold weather, but doesn't a 21-year-old champion deserve a bit more shelter than an open shed? :oops:

I'm guessing she also has an inside stall and this is while she's turned out. Man, I can't believe she's 21.

What's her age and record got to do with it?

She's a horse. And one that appears to have a nice, thick winter coat. I'm sure when the weather is nasty and cold she is brought inside, but I'd also wager she enjoys her turnout time. ;)

I just saw that above post on FB.

Does anyone know when or how Coolmore ended up with On Parade?? *Edit - I guess at Keeneland Nov 2015...
Surprised to see her in the retired field at 20 too.

I can assure you that Sam-Son has a very nice facility in Milton and their retirees (both racehorses and jumpers) are well taken care of.

I knew they were in Ontario, but had no idea they were in Milton.
I was in Milton for work in Feb darnit! Just Googled, and I was 11 kms away :(
