At the age of 29, the pensioner by Cox’s Ridge is part of the “senior group” of Manchester mares yet maintains a youthful personality and maneuvers easily through her daily routine. While getting a bath, she will drink from the hose. She likes to scrunch up her nose and move it side to side.

Look for the editorial feature “Catching Up” on Twilight Ridge in an upcoming issue of The Blood-Horse. Written by Claire Novak, the feature will highlight some of the wonderful stories shared by the farm staff at Mike Rutherford’s Manchester Farm.
