Michael Blowen was sick and tired of hearing about these former champions being sent off to die once they were too old to race. He wanted to give these horses a special place to retire where they would still be admired, respected and most of all – protected.

This is how Old Friends Farm was created. Hear the full story told by Michael in the video below of how Old Friends Farm began and learn about a few of the champion horses that are residing there.
