Unlike with children, you’re allowed to have a favorite horse. This is Izzy, a thoroughbred/warmblood cross. She has anhidrosis, a big-ass osteochondritis dissecans lesion in her stifle, a mysterious skin condition affecting her udder, long pasterns, underrun heels, her tail won’t grow, and her top speed is “whoa,” but I love her. You can tell just by looking at a horse’s eye if she’s a stinker or a sweetie-pie. Izzy’s a sweetie-pie.
