Zenyatta at the Farm!

Wednesday December 22 2010

The Bloodhorse and Lane's End Farm - Zenyatta's new home - were kind enough to create and publish this video of Zenyatta in the snow in her paddock. (Thanks Karen W for passing this on!)

Zenyatta still makes me weep!


  1. Thank you so much for the video. Watching her makes me weep also. So beautiful and strong!! Love to see her enjoying her new home!

  2. I didn't cry this time, but my heart was racing with excitement watching her run. I could watch her run at liberty like that, all day long. I hope they allow her to spend more time outside than just that short video, though.

    She was having such fun! All her little bucks. So cute! I loved how she carries her tail flagged like a free-spirited Arabian. Wheee!
    And she made me laugh towards the end when she was being led out. She reminded me of a Pacing horse the way she was stretching her legs so far forward. She's gorgeous!

    And I was laughing at the way her entourage acted like a bunch of groupies ready to do Zenyatta's bidding....Gourmet mineral water, Miss Z? Some petting, Miss Z? A truckload of carrots, Miss Z?

    She's living a luxurious life in her retirement, that's for sure. Wish all race horses had this to look forward to.

  4. Yes Zayetta is a magnificent horse!
    Brings tears to my eyes too.
    In Australia we had the pleasure of seeing another beauty, "Americain",(USA trained). winner of our Melbourne Cup.A race for three-year-olds and over, over a distance of 3,200 metres.
    i could go on Makybe Diva, & Viewed also great horses.
    Happy Christmas.
    Love Cassie. Sydney

  5. Brought a tear to my eye when she started running. I was afraid "turnout" was just going to be walked around on a lead. She was having a grand time out there!

  6. PS: Merri, you asked, "What is a spike?" A spike is a young (usually 1 - 2 years) bull elk or buck deer with a set of unbranched antlers. After the first year or two, the antlers usually branch or fork with multiple tines growing out from a main beam.

  7. She is a special and beautiful horse. I love her attitude and personality. I'm glad they let her off the lead to have a romp.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  8. "A thing of beauty is a joy forever......!" what an exquisite animal! She has earned her gallops in the snow!!

  9. Saw it, love it, heart warming! She has a super Team supporting her and doing it right!
