Default Wyatt - The Bridleless Pony



"During Wyatt’s ponying career, he has formed bonds with many racehorses, but one of his favorites is Deputiformer, a hard-knocking eight-year-old gelding that has won an astounding eight times in 2013.

“Every day before Deputiformer trains, Wyatt walks him to the track and then they hang out for twenty minutes or so before Deputy starts off,” Donna states. “Deputy takes a nap, standing on the track while Wyatt diligently watches the other horses, pinning his ears at anyone who gets too close to Deputiformer.”

Same here. It seems like every time I read a story involving the Keens or hear about them on ATR, my respect for them only increases.

By the way, Deputiformer is back in the winner's circle at 9.
