Adopted: August 7, 2014
Texas Joker was adopted with her buddy, Peacock's Promise, on August 7th. The girls have been doing great so far at their adoptive home and will be spending a few months fattening up some more while their adopter finishes her move to BC.
We can't wait to see them both under-saddle once they start their training! For now, they are loving the pasture life.

Texas Joker is a 4 year old Standardbred born April 2010. She is unraced and was surrendered along with Peacock's Promise (her half-sister) as their owner was unable to secure stalls for them for this racing season. Joker is by As Promised (a well known Standardbred stud who earned $669,639 in his career) and out of Copper the Whip (a 1992 Standardbred mare who earned $105,411 in her career).
She is a gorgeous and very sweet mare with a very athletic build. She is sound and intelligent and has lots of potential to be a riding horse in any discipline. She is broke to drive, but not yet started for riding. She will make a nice easy project for an intermediate to advanced rider.
