Zenyatta Tidbits and Pics

As December comes to a close, guest blogger/photographer Mathea Kelley had a chance to sit down with Zenyatta's barn foreman Matt Martinez, to get some inside scoop on some Zenyatta “factoids”.  Here are his answers and a bit about Matt too....

  • Zenyatta comes in every morning with Tasty to have breakfast and a look over to make sure she is sound and happy. After she is done with her oats and given a little TLC she is turned back out to her paddock to graze and enjoy the rest of her day outside. It is simple and routine which is just what a broodmare needs.
  • Zenny loves food and will eat just about anything you put in front of her! She very much enjoys bananas and carrots of course.
  • Her favorite people are Mr. and Mrs. Moss.
  • She has no dislikes. She loves everything.
  • I would say that Zenyatta is loving every minute of retirement! Coming from the race track and transitioning to life on the farm is a very important process for a broodmare and she has been just wonderful. Throughout the day you can find her gazing off into the distance, taking it all in, happy to be where she is. She loves grazing outside with her pal Tasty Temptation. The two of them are the best of friends and spend a lot of time grooming each other. Zenny is also always happy to come to the fence to say "hello" to anyone who stops by.
  • People always ask if she still "dances". The answer is yes, she still loves to dance.

Matt was born and raised in Texas and moved to Kentucky 6 years ago and instantly fell in love with horses. He has been surrounded by horses ever since...

I was recently at Lanes End and took some new photos of Zenyatta enjoying a warm sunny fall day. She looks great don’t you think?  Perhaps the next photos will be in the snow! Stay tuned to www.ThroughTheLensBlog.com for updates.
