The "Old Friends" Retirement Home for Professional Athletes
In reply to Wormsmeat, 2 months ago

If you're ever around Louisville KY, drop by the Old Friends Retirement home to meet, up close and personal, some of the finest retired athletes in the country.

They have a nice peaceful home with plenty of places to enjoy being horses

Popcorn Deelite had a second career as a movie star - he played "Sea Biscuit" in the movie. His best friend learned to roll his upper lip at the track, where the tattoo in their mouths is always checked before a race.

Cat Launch holds a record for the most consecutive wins - 13. He interrupted a nice mud-roll to come see if we had carrots for him.

Some horses are owned by celebrities like Burt Bacharach

Some of the older fellows move slowly on arthritic knees, kind of like some of us

Eldaafur has two goats and is distraught when his goats are out of sight. They joined him in retirement  after he grieved for them so terribly.

Swannee is the only card carrying equine member of the Boston Red Sox. He bit me on the shoulder when I walked away with carrots still in my hand.
