Vintage, the Horse Model

Vintage has been retired so long, I’ve forgotten if I even chronicled her lameness. Basically, it all started many years ago when she jumped out of her stall window. She hurt her fetlock, and long story short, she went to the vet clinic, got a total evaluation, and injections made her sound. Long story short, […]

TuffRider Tatum Tights Review
