I met Faith (registered name Desperate Measures) in fall of 2013 while at the track with a friend who was looking to buy a new horse or two. It was love at first sight, and I had to have this gorgeous mare even though I wasn't looking for a horse. She is a giant snuggle bug who absolutely loves people, and is incredibly gentle even with children. She has surpassed any expectation I have had for her in her training. She learns very quickly, is always completely focused on what you are asking and has an amazing ability to retain. She is by the same sire as California Chrome and when everyone raved about his calmness and focus, it was easy to understand as I saw it all in Faith. I have yet to see her spook, nothing seems to faze her. I love when she meets new people as they always expect this wild, high strung horse and it's awesome to see her prove them all wrong. Faith has been a dream, she is absolutely perfect and behaves for the vet, farrier and when trailering. She is the whole package from her looks to her athletic ability and temperament. I am completely sold and addicted to the OTTBs, it really doesn't get any better!!
