  2. hi zsters ;)

    thx for hovis sheena <3 love readinjg about his adventures

    todays devo:

    I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you.
    I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.
    Hosea 14:8

    God goes with us into the wilderness and every dry land. He is the answer to every question, the life blooming from dirt, the promise that we’re never done surrendering.

    Are you hurting today? Take heart. Dare to see God, right now. Dare to believe the things you’ve been taught are true, that He’s beside you, and His hand reaches out for yours.

    hugz & prayerz, vamp

    1. I just saw the picture on Her Mike’s Facebook page, and I’m sobbing. Zenny looks so happy to see him! The love on Mike’s face for his “special girl” is so evident. I’ll bet he’ll be thinking about everything he and Zenyatta accomplished in their race years together, especially tomorrow during the BC.

    1. Dear Sheena,
      This video and these lads are hilarious. It is quite obvious that the
      horses are not TB. Too many scary things on them and so quiet.
      Love the ghost carrying his treat bag.
      Love and hugs

      1. Dear Tizgood.I always look forward to their videos on Saturday.Mattie(Batch) is a jumps jockey over here.One of the funniest guys in the weighing room.Everyone was so thrilled when he won the Hennessey a few years ago on Carruthers for Lord Oaksey.Good chasing here today.I heard Beholder is only going to have a 6-8 week rest not enough surely??Hugs Sheena

        1. Dear Sheena,
          Your jockey’s are so multitalented; read AP
          is going to be on Channel 4 with Clare. That
          is going to be so wonderful. I miss Gary Stevens
          a lot; he was great on HRTV. Wonder what they
          are going to run Beholder in; Beholder was treated
          very quickly and carefully here by Mandella and the
          Vet at Keenland. Seems like things are mild for her and should
          resolve quickly.
          Enjoy jumps today.
          Love and hugs

  19. October 31 Cherokee Devotional

    Few things are mind-and-spirit-adjusting like putting our hand to a job that has m=been waiting too long. The bigger the job, the better our concentration.
    Work keeps the hands busy and frees the mind from raw nerves and injured feelings A time to talk will come-if it is needed at all. Sometimes busy hands like walking feet can do away with things thought to be unsolvable.
    Decide to do a thing that no one else can do-a specific move away from pain. It can set the wheel to turn-maybe slowly at first-but soon you’ll be on top again.

    If white man wants to live in peace with Indian he can live in peace.
    Chief Joseph
    Nez Perce

  20. Dear Kathy.I don’t think white man wanted to live in peace with anyone even themselves and don’t get me started on the way they treat wildlife!!!We had 30million hedgehogs in the UK during the 50’s now there are only a million!!Thank you for the Halloween card.It’s bigger over here now than St Valentine’s day.Our AP is at Ascot talking about his new job for channel 4 he’s beginning to lose that gaunt look now.
    I haven’t had much time to visit the furbabies took flowers up for my mother she died 8yrs ago tomorrow.So many memories.
    Weather still very mild over here.The big day is here for AP and our GH.As long as they stay safe and sound.Kimberly decorates her house for the autumn and Fubu helps out!
    Loved the pic of the ratties and their family for Halloween.Noel Fehily has a treble at Wetherby!Down Royal next!Fly is parading there.Have a great time watching the races tonight.Love and hugs to you,Kisses for Holly,Nikko and Sugar.SheenaXOXO

  21. D Wayne Lucas is on as commentator for TVG today. Great comments on the
    Juvenile fillies – not a one horse race, being Songbird. Almost on now. Enjoy
    the East to West competition.

  22. Congratulations to Cue Card back to his brilliant best in the Charlie Hall at Wetherby.A great favourite of Alice Fox-Pitt’sDon Cossack an amazing win at Down Royal.Sheena.

  23. Great win for Songbird and Mike!!!What an amazing filly Rachel’s daughter was 2nd.Hugs Sheena

    1. Dear Sheena,
      Songbird is huge compared to the other 2 yo and extremely
      talented, big as Zenny ( not quite). Rachel Valentina tried to catch
      her, she is much smaller. Great race, westcoast wins !!!!

      Sophie Doyle is now racing filly and mare sprint; Frankie on Judy the Beauty as the
      favorite and last years winner; of course Cavorting a big talent !!! Great race
      coming up.
      Love and hugs

  24. Great run by Legatissimo to get 2nd place after a difficult start and Run Happy won!Sheena.

    1. Run Happy is hot stuff! And his trainer, so dedicated, what a dream come true for her!

  25. Switched to NBC great beautiful coverage of the BC, GH looked beautiful in the paddock, curious about the bright colored ponies. Beated by the filly Found;
    amazing race. GH ran his heart out, ground too soft. Lovely lovely filly could not
    beat GH in the Arc, but beat him here.

    Great BC turf !!!!! Hope their is some US interest in GH

  26. Congratulations to Grand Slam winner American Pharoah on winning the Classic in his last race ever! You have made so many people so happy and proud AP, and we will miss seeing you on the track. Have a good time in Kentucky making Lil’ Pharoahs. I hope you get to meet THE QUEEN, Zenyatta for a date someday!

  27. American Pharoah wins easily!GH’s race was a repeat of the Juddmonte beaten by a girl again!He didn’t care for the softish ground.I watched the races on Judy’s link.Huge congratulations to a fantastic champion.Now he will start a new life in a beautiful home.Hugs Sheena.God bless Found and Ryan.

    1. Those Euro girls are a tough lot !!!!
      Congratulations to AP, wish he was racing at 4; BB asked
      but …..

      1. Victor Espinoza answered the question of racing AP at 4 right after the big race: no one wants Pharoah to get hurt. Secretariat’s syndication partners pretty much shut his racing career down after the Canadian International race on turf which he won handily. I think also that insuring AP to race at 4 now that his value is through the roof isn’t encouraged by the insurance firm that insures him because, God forbid, if something happened, their payout to the Zayats would be huge.

        1. Debbie E good point about the insurance; worrying about the horse getting
          hurt?;he can get cast in his stall at Coolmore or god forbid have a paddock
          accident, colic, get a spinal cord injury from breeding etc…. . Penny Chenery syndicated Secretariat his 3 year old year because she had to save the farm. Unfortunately $$$$ is the reason he is being retired at 3, which is sad.

        2. I meant getting hurt or killed on the track. I realize that accidents and illnesses happen to horses no matter how safe we try to keep them. Unfortunately, we just remembered a day where that exact thing happened one year ago. Horses get hurt and horses die and they don’t have to be doing anything particularly dangerous like racing. In Pharoah’s case, he sustained a bad injury to his left front hoof last year during a workout that requires him to wear a special shoe. I think that Bob Baffert and the Zayats have worried about that hoof all season despite the shoe brace and really don’t want to push AP in a 4 year-old campaign out of fear that the injury will recur with catastrophic results. Better to let him go out a winning champion with happy memories cemented in the public’s mind.

        3. Deb E you make some great points; this week BB asked if he could race at
          4. It is so impressive that there were no injuries, breakdowns or tragic consequences for any of the horses and riders at Keenland. They did a wonderful job with the BC. Hope everyone who went to the BC had a great
          time and have a lot to share.

          Love and hugs

  28. Dear Tizgood.A lot of criticism for Aidan running Gleneagles on dirt.He hated the surface.beaten 25 lengths .A sad end to his career .GH can hold his head high in 2nd place and drug free!Sad to see them retire so young that’s why I love the jumps.They have long careers.Hugs Sheena

    1. Dear Sheena,
      Noticed he did not like the surface; I don’t think this performace
      will at all affect GE value as a stallion or make him look negative
      in anyones eyes. I understand their is a faction of race goers that are
      not fond of Adian and some of the things he does, but like Richard Mandella says
      sometimes I know what I am doing and sometimes it is guess work and
      if a trainer does not try new things they will not move forward. DOW loved running
      on the dirt in the BCC, was very competative with our best dirt horses, who would
      have figured that he would have done as well as he did?
      There are many horses that don’t like the surface
      they run on at times. GE is a European champion and no one can take
      that from him; he is gorgeous and will be a great stallion. Remember Animal
      Kingdom our KY Derby winner and Dubai World Cup winner; he went out
      looking poorly running at Royal Ascot, did the same thing only he came in
      last as the favorite. GM took a risk, that could have enhanced his stallion value,
      it did not work. He is still a great stallion !!!!
      Love and hugs

      1. PS
        I agree with you about jumps, they are around longer,
        you can enjoy them; and the horses are so tough.

  29. On a different subject congratulations to the All Blacks(New Zealand)for winning back-to-back Rugby world Cups.They beat Australia 34-17.The referee was welsh!!!Sheena

  30. Wow. What a wonderful day of racing!

    Love the turf fillies, sorry Golden Horn:)

    Pharoah, yay. Track record! What a beautiful way to end a sparkling career.

    PS it was hysterical seeing the handicappers dis Stephanie’s Kitten. LOL.
