Every year, thousands of Thoroughbred racehorses find themselves homeless and without purpose due to events in the Thoroughbred racing industry. German commanders after several failed attempts to take Bastogne decided to strike at what appeared to be the weakest point in the American defensive line. It was a part of the front where only two companies of the 101st Airborne, no more than 300 men, held a line that stretched over a mile and a half around the northeastern part of Bastogne near the small village of Foy. Captain Richard “Dick” Winters commanded those 300 men of the 101st which were positioned to take a direct hit from the German advance. Soon masses German tanks and infantry opened a crack in Bastogne’s outer defenses in an all-out attack. The outnumbered soldiers fought desperately against the oncoming flood of German tanks and panzer grenadiers. Allied troops inside Bastogne’s inner defense would again mount another desperate counter-attack pushing the Germans back with heavy losses. It is a story that legends are made of, and a part of American history that should never be forgotten. Great explorers lost at sea; ships trapped in ice, frozen in time; gifts from the Queen of England and a priceless desk that is used to this day by American presidents. The Dafuskie Marsh Tacky Society , located in Bluffton, SC, was formed to preserve the breed which was in danger of disappearing. They have multiple horses at the races today including a dark blue roan or grulla stallion with zebra striping from his hocks to his dark lower legs and a dark dorsal stripe down his smokey blue hide. His mane is thick and dark and his mouth is small. He looks more Mustang than Marsh Tacky and is gorgeous to look at, like a plush stuffed animal they sell at Disneyland. One of the oldest existing breeds in the world, the Akhal-Teke hails from the country of Turkmenistan and even serves as the nation’s symbol. These horses may as well be the definition of beauty, with the distinctive metallic coat and sparse mane and tail. They are also known for the speed, endurance and intelligence, enabling them to be fantastic sport horses. Teke horses are usually used in dressage, show jumping, racing and endurance riding.

Due to fuel rationing during World War II the Freisian’s farm and carriage use was revived, saving the breed long enough for both its population and popularity to rebound. Due to the fuel shortages, Dutch farmers turned to horses for transportation and fieldwork. The Friesian is one of the best carriage horses in the world. Due to its flashy appearance, the Friesian has become popular in the film industry. The breed owes much of its current popularity to the appearance of the Friesian stallion Othello in the 1985 film, Ladyhawke, which ignited a worldwide interest in these horses.

In the central sector of the Ardennes front which extended twenty-eight miles, Hitler selected Hasso von Manteuffel to lead the 5th Panzer Army in its thrust toward Antwerp. Manteuffel was impressed by Hitler’s magnetic personality but recognized Hitler’s weakness concerning grand strategy and tactical awareness, even though, he thought the Fuehrer had a flair for originality and daring. Manteuffel was an insightful leader who’s success was a result of the tactics he conceived while serving in North Africa and Russia. His strategy involved dividing his forces into small self-contained but potent mobile fighting units, which penetrated the flanks of advancing enemy spearheads. Once his forces were behind the advancing enemy formations they would counter-attack the enemy’s undefended rear. His tactics had great success defeating Russian spearheads on the eastern front. He would once again employed his strategy in the rugged Ardennes, where his spearheads quickly penetrated deep behind the American lines as they rushed toward Bastogne.

In the United States each year an estimated 30 million people ride horses, resulting in 50,000 emergency department visits (1 visit per 600 riders per year). 16 A survey of 679 equestrians in Oregon, Washington and Idaho estimated that at some time in their equestrian career one in five will be seriously injured, resulting in hospitalization, surgery or long-term disability. 17 Among survey respondents, novice equestrians had an incidence of any injury that was threefold over intermediates, fivefold over advanced equestrians, and nearly eightfold over professionals. Approximately 100 hours of experience are required to achieve a substantial decline in the risk of injury. The survey authors conclude that efforts to prevent equestrian injury should focus on novice equestrians.
Showjumping is the last phase; where the horse and rider are tested over a technical course of coloured showjumps that can be knocked down, again this must be completed within a certain time frame, again faults are given for disobediences, fences down and running over the time aloud. Though anti horse slaughter groups have successfully shut down horse slaughterhouses in America, horse breeding has only increased. If horses at auction don’t wind up at slaughter, where are all the “unwanted” horses going to go? As with the millions of unwanted dogs and cats who are euthanased every year, it would be nice if we could say unwanted horses are “humanely destroyed.” But, horses are just not that easy to put down. Besides being big, difficult to transport, to house, and to feed, horses cost several hundred dollars to put down. For “humane” treatment, horses need not only feed, water, and vaccinations, but also farrier care and often special nutritional, veterinary, and stabling.

He was born on Good Friday 2009 and is now the overall champion for the 5th Annual Marsh Tacky Beach Race. He is a stunning mahogany bay horse that gleams with no show sheen on him. He turns to a deep blood bay in winter months. He has an outstanding disposition, as do his foals. He was the best mannered horse there. And his rider is classically trained and her riding form and training should satisfy any “purist.” Additionally, Friday is the Southeast Reserve Champion for the American Indian Horse Registry. He won that title at age 3. After we won the bid the reality quickly set in as the broker escorted us to the office to sign the sales agreement. No money was exchanged at this time and I learned that most people fly home on Sunday and then complete a wire transfer to the Verband for payment on Monday. But we had arranged a flight back later in the week and after advising the office of this found that they were very helpful and willing to work with us.
