"My Little Secret" saved us from the sad loss of our beloved
horse, Beau Coup, a splendid and magnificent Percheron mare who died
a few days before Christmas, 2011.
2 days before Christmas, My Little Secret arrived at The Red Horse
I don’t think she was quite ready or prepared to take over the
prestigious task of filling the horse shoes of those who had
preceded her. She was only nine months old and had spent most of her
life carelessly grazing in green pastures. She was as green as the
grass, having never been touched or trained. Frightened of
everything, she would not allow us to touch any part of her. She was
ready to kick, bite, fight and flee... hence we will begin the long
and patient and loving task of "gentling" her with the same
techniques as depicted in "The Horse Whisperer."
We invite all of our guests to join us each Saturday at 2:00
(weather and weddings permitting) to watch as we "gentle" My Little
How she got her name: her great grandfather was Secretariat, the one
and only Big Red!
