Blog Tales from the LOPE Ranch

The LOPE Award for “Most Addicted Adopter” Goes to a Doctor!


alanfarmDr. Alan and his terrific family have adopted seven LOPE horses — plus they have taken in at least four other ex-racers.

They have a lovely ranch with lots of grass and turnout — as you can see, the horses are very happy there.

Dr. Alan gets a big kick out of looking up their pedigrees — he enjoys seeing great-grandchildren of Seattle Slew and Secretariat grazing in his pastures.

A big thank you to Dr. Alan and his family for giving such a great home to so many ex-racers!
