2021 Loch Moy Farm Greatest Holiday Spirit Award
Pixel (High Resolution) is a 2008 OTTB. He's Jockey Club registered as Formidable Image and raced 7 times with a grand total earnings of $2,120. He placed 3rd once but had no real desire or talent for racing, and usually finished at the back of the pack. A friend of a friend got him right off the track so he wouldn't go to auction or questionable places and mostly trail rode him until I purchased him in 2015. Since then we have played in local hunter & jumper shows and have been eventing at Beginner Novice. He is part leased to an adult amateur at our farm and last winter we used him to tow us around on a sled when we had enough snow, among all his other adventures.
Pixel will do almost anything for treats and most of all is willing to put up with my habit of dressing him up for the holidays- he was a very good sport about being the Peppermint Pony for the Donation Derby! I think he genuinely enjoys the attention & was paid well in carrots for all his efforts.

EQUINE BIO-SECURITY MEASURES: For the MDHT April Starter- Use standard bio security practices: Don’t let horses touch or share equipment, drink out of the same bucket, etc. If your horse has a fever, don’t come. Don’t touch other people’s horses. Wash your hands frequently if you must touch other horses e.g. a trainer with multiple students who don’t board in the same barn. The EDCC recommends a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection for out of state horses and a health declaration for all. We encourage people to take temps and do a self assessment. Safety for all. One wash stall open.
