On The Bit

Hola C Bright

I've been away for bit on a mini vacation and I got to see Barbaro's 2 yr old full brother, Lentenor, run in his first race - Lentenor at Keeneland

Needless to say, I had a blast.

But that meant Toby and Hola had a mini vacation as well. Hola hadn't been worked in 2 weeks due to his sore back leg then my mini vacation! Now that he's in excellent health -poops and all - meant he was going to be put to work today. This was only the third time he's had a rider and the second time that Betsy has trotted him around. Needless to say, I'm a proud mom.

I do have a Canoodler update. Seems he has found a new career in fox hunting where he will be fortunate enough to spend his winters in Georgia. What a lucky guy!


  1. I'm so glad for Canoodler! And I hope Hola got a whole bag of carrots; what a boy!

  2. Big sigh of relief for Canoodler. Hola and Betsy's praise could not be cuter.

  3. What a good boy Hola is. Betsy looks like a nice quiet rider, too.

    I love the mirror picture. Aww.

  4. Any chance Canoodler is coming to Bear Creek in Moreland, Georgia?


  5. Glad to hear that Hola's feeling better; and he certainly looks lovely. Coming down on the bit already -- quite impressive!
    And *whew* thank goodness Canoodler has found a good home; he looks like such a special boy.

  6. Hola is looking very light and lovely. Congrats on the progress.
