  1. My tears and thoughts are with Paynter, I prayed for his recovery…………….I love all the delicate Race Horses , they are a Breed of their own, but they have more delicate constitutions then their counter part horses have, of which we can say is the manner in which they are bred……………….is the cause , why dont they ask other Countries about how they breed their Race Horses , there is something good going on with they way they bred their horses they dont have half the breakdowns we have over here ??????????


  2. Still praying for you PAYNTER. Let “them” know when you don’t want to fight anymore and are suffering. WE LOVE YOU.
