Old Horse Jumps from Glue Factory to Olympics Stage

from msn.com

​At 12 years old, racehorse Neville Bardos is well past his prime. In 2002, he narrowly escaped the slaughterhouse after a failed racing career. In 2011, he was horrifically burned in a Pennsylvania barn fire that killed six horses. But now, against all odds, the chestnut gelding is making a comeback. He’s not only a contender for equestrian glory at the London Olympic Games, but also set to be the subject of a new film. The handsome horse is considered a frontrunner in “three-day eventing” which encompasses dressage, cross country and show jumping. Meanwhile, his owner, Boyd Martin, who took a gamble on Neville just before he was headed to the glue factory, has just sold the movie rights to the story of Neville’s troubled life.

  1. I just lost my Ameican Pitbull. His name was Elliot. He was just about to turn 14.He was a great dog. Loyal , Trusting And full of Pride. I had himm with me since he wad 6 wks old and spent the next 14yrs by my side. He loved everything and everybody.There are so many stories about how bad they can be.None of it is true about the dog being bad. Its all the irresponceable dog owners to blame. I am in the process of looking for another i will never have any other breed. They are wonderful dogs. Just wanted to talk about him. He is greatly missed by everyone who knew him. Guy Parodi NJ

    this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if
    the problem still exists.
