Calabar's race videos

Realizing that my RealVideo downloads would disappear with the aging family laptop, I invested a few bucks in some RealPlayer software that has allowed me to post to YouTube and save them to a DVD.

Here is Calabar's win from November 22nd, 2003--two days before Katie's thirteenth birthday:

Here is his last race, the one where he bowed his tendon:

My boy was fast, but I'm almost glad for his injury. Had he made it to the big time, he would never had ended up with me. And that is where he belongs.

Isn't it awesome to watch them run? I felt like I was looking at a different horse when I found a couple of Miles' racing videos online...no way is that my dirty hairy (non ribby!) sweet boy:)

You've done such a great job with Bar. Definitely meant to be.

Cool! Glad you were able to post them. He was fast!

The injury was a blessing in disguise. I hate to see a horse hurt, but it clearly led to him being where he belongs.
