Widden Stud shared this photograph of Black Caviar on her way to the covering shed for her rendez-vous with Sebring earlier this month. What a great sky!
Surely after all that she has given there would be consideration after all that she has given. She is still having to pay her way, foal at foot, when will she get her well earned lifetime retirement, without having to produce foal after foal. A risky business, for her- what if she was lost to birthing, imagine the controversy. Give the girl a break, please- the nation loves her, for who she is not for what she is forced to produce. She should have been able to enjoy her foal and be a mamma without becoming a mamma over and over again. This is her time, surely anyone with conscience, can give this girl a real and decent well earned attempt at simply being herself without additional demands.
Jennifer, she's a young mare in the prime of life. She's only being asked to do what she would do naturally in the wild but with the bonus of a very cushy lifestyle. These horses get the best of everything. She will cope with this no problem.
This Great mare has retired, she doesn't have to get up before dawn and work out every morning with a rider on her back. She is out in a paddock with her foal, just hanging out, getting the best of everything and passing her great genes onto her offspring.
