Horse Haiku

On the track “failure”
Off track her kind eyes caught mine
Now loving best friend

By Julie Howard

Julie’s haiku goes out to her OTTB “Sweetie.”

Julie writes, “She is a 5 year old daughter of Victory Gallop (won the Belmont in 1998).  It was love at first sight. I hadn’t owned a horse since 1979 and got her in January of this year. She’s such a gift to my life!  Through her I have made friends, been a better person and stay active!  When I retire I know how I’m going to give back–somehow helping these magnificent and gracious horses that give us so much joy!!”
