    Josh Taylor, this horse is being retired to Mill Creek, a retirement home that has come up on the radar of experienced horsepeople across the country due to concerns of very thin horses on the farm being managed in a one-size-fits-all style that means some are not thriving.
    This horses Special has a very serious condition, Lymphangitis, which needs special care and attention which many are concerned this facility will not be able or willing to offer her. Please see the comments and concerns at the link below, and perhaps follow up on the care offered there and the sad condition of some of the nearly 140 horses this facility is caring for.
