UPDATED FEBRUARY 2018: Bear Rapper was adopted in December 2017 ! Bear was definitely a stable favourite and after completing his Rehabilitation with ITR Re-Trainer Paul Austin, he was sent to his new home in QLD. After retiring from racing with soundness issues, we decided the best place for Bear would be a loving home where he would just spend his retirement grazing and playing in the paddock. He settled in very well at his new home and we are delighted to hear that he is moving very well and has made some new friends! His new owner Pam reports that he plays and gallops around most days and is very sweet and loves his food!
UPDATE AUGUST 2018: The last horse I was able visit whilst I was home was Bear Rapper S337! Honestly I was blown away. Pam you have done the most amazing job with him! He is such a Happy and Fat Boy now! It was so lovely to see him well and that his Soundness had improved so much! He loves his partner in crime Macqueen, I love how they play together like 2 year old children!
This is what I love about my Job! When we get to see these horses so happy and well looked after in their new homes, and to finally meet these beautiful people taking such great care of them, just warms my heart! I can't wait to see Bear out and about next year at some shows! You are going to have so much fun with him!
