Racing Career and Breeding

     

Talk Talk didn’t get too many runs under his belt before being retired as a 3 year old. However, he did manage to finish 4th in his last race as a racehorse in 2010. Given his small frame he was a sprinter and plied his trade on the flat. Despite his limited career he did grace Newmarket racecourse with his presence! The three jockeys to have the pleasure of riding him are Louis Beuzelin, Martin Dwyer and even top jockey Ryan Moore.

 

Life after racing

We were alerted to Timmy’s plight by a member of the public – he was being sold very cheaply on the internet. It turned out that a livery yard owner had taken him in to save him from being put down and was just trying to find him a home. After a phone call, the gentleman agreed to give him to the charity for rehabilitation. He had a nasty injury and it was unclear if he would recover enough to work again.

Tim had a number of months off to recuperate and then was slowly brought back into work. However, just as he was making good progress his injury came come back to haunt him. A scan sadly showed this is irreparable, and would only deteriorate. There was only one choice for us— to make him as comfortable as possible as a permanent resident. He is now officially the charities mascot. 

   

 

This chap is more human than horse! Whilst he loves his field companions he still seems to prefer the company of people. This is not always a good thing as he has no sense of personal space and regularly bumps into or treads on us. Not to mention that he is convinced that everybody’s pockets hold a tasty treat for him, so he spends an inordinate amount of time trying to chew through our coats! He is a delightful character, but is quite frankly an accident waiting to happen. He is into everything, and often getting himself into scrapes!
