Wise Dan Returns Home


Order This Photo

Wise Dan looked great coming off the van at Amy and Charlie LoPresti’s Forest Lane Farm near Lexington, Kentucky on the afternoon of May 21, 2014. After recent colic surgery at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital, Wise Dan was returning from the clinic to the farm for some R&R before returning to training.

He came off the van full of himself and ready to check out his current location. Wise Dan spends time at Forest Lane when not in training and vocally reacted to the two Quarter Horses in the barn, all acknowledging each other’s presence.

After grazing briefly, the Horse of the Year was lead into his bedded-down stall. The Lopresti’s have an outdoor pen set up for Wise Dan so he can graze and spend time outside.

Poor guy, looks like he lost a bunch of weight, but of course this stuff is so hard on a horse. Hope is recovery is smooth and uneventful.

Not to worry FSF - they said in an article that he only lost 10 pounds!

Twists arise from intestinal scarring from parasites.
