Yesterday I got a message on FB from the McKenna's old owner, the one who got her off the track and put her in training. I was under the impression that she hadn't done much with her....had put her in training for 8 months without going to see her. I was kinda worried at first, thinking that she wanted her back or wanted $$$ for her. We never signed any paperwork for McKenna, and don't have papers on her, so legally we're a bit screwed. But then a friend request popped up and I started to breath easy.
J, the former owner, just wanted to know how she was doing and gave me some more background on McKenna. I guess she got her a week after she came off the track in April 2012. I get the impression that she might have been at a feedlot, or on her way to one. J said they spent about 4 months putting weight on her and letting her chill before staring to work with her. Her vet said when they got McKenna she was 200lbs underweight, even for an OTTB.
