Happy Wednesday!

As most of you know, we went to Florida at the beginning of the month to check in with Coz who has been at Mayberry Farm in Ocala for two months now. Jeanne Mayberry established the farm in 2000 and now runs it with the help of her daughters Summer and April. Today they are teaching Cozmic One the skills and routine that Zenyatta learned in 2005.

  12. He looks absolutely stunning. I remember seeing the pictures of him when he was still a little one. I can’t believe how much he has grown.

  13. I can’t wait tout see how this young horse does and see if he gets to be in the triple crown races next year. He has some great horses in his pedigree. He could be the next Triple Crown horse.

  14. not sure if this is the appropriate place to ask but would it be possible to use the photo of Coz in his stall for a graphite pencil drawing? I am not a professional by any means, but it is such a beautiful photo and I would love the opportunity to capture it in a drawing, with permission of course

  15. Does anyone know how many hands Coz is? He looks like he is about 16+ hands. He is so beautiful and elegant, just like Mom.
