Tesla was adopted in October of 2022 by Starr in North Carolina. Starr has been following Tesla since his arrival in May and was SO excited to finally bring him home to her farm. He joins her other horses there, and her expectations for him are to be a handsome companion horse at worst, and at best, a horse she can hack around her farm one day if he's up to it. We could not be happier for him.
Lectric Choke is a 5 year old, 16.2 hand, grey gelding who arrived by way of Beyond the Wire in Maryland. This guy raced 34 times and did well, earning over $140,000! This guy is by Flashback (by Tapit) and out of a mare by Flatter. He’s a big guy, but came in underweight. We can’t wait to see how he looks once he fills out.
“Tesla’s” last race was on March 31, 2022 and afterward it was discovered he had a very small, apical fracture of one sesamoid so his connections made the choice to retire him. After arrival we confirmed he also has a small lesion in one suspensory branch on the same leg. He’s currently on stall rest and will likely be on stall rest for several months. Thankfully he’s a good patient and is very sweet. We are working on getting some groceries on him while he heals.
Our vet will be checking on him again soon and possibly repeating radiographs as well. He is not currently available until he is more comfortable. We will update this page as he progresses through his rehab.
