KY Horses: Meet "Slewcy's Gale"

While Echo and Dakota sit in Michigan waiting for their June arrival, I thought I'd introduce a few of the main horses I'm around now in Lexington. When they arrive they are most likely going to be turned out together and not with any other horses so no field mates to introduce but possible riding and barn horsey friends.

'Slewcy' is a 1995 mare by Slew City Slew out of a mare by name of Winnowing Wind. Slewcy never ran on the track, but found home at the Kentucky Horse Park. In 2000 when my friend Colleen was doing an internship at the KHP, she met Slewcy. 

KHP had Slewcy as part of their breeding program for many years, usually crossing her with a Percheron stallion, and the occasional Thoroughbred.
Shes brindle! 
George, now owns Slewcy and her Into Mischief weanling filly and she was bred to Line of David for a 2014 foal.
