Come Talk to Me has been a tough horse from the start. After retiring from the track and earning $142,000 in 46 starts over 6 years he wasn’t close to being done. After a short rehab he quickly found an adopter with his good attitude and sturdy legs. For 6 years he and his adopted owner never stopped. Come Talk to Me was a willing, happy and healthy horse until he contracted EPM. He came back to the TRF to finally be retired and was sent to our South Carolina farm to avoid the harsh, snowy winters of NY where he had be residing most of his adult life. South Carolina had milder weather and softer ground for the horse that wasn’t going to let a little disease get him down. He lived happily with his herd mates for many more years – never causing problems and wanting to live. In November of 2013, that look in his eye was gone and we knew he was finally “tired” of living with EPM. He will be missed.
