Turbulent Creek


"Turbulent Creek" or TC as we are calling him is a dark bay 15.3hh 5 year old (2008) gelding by Storm Creek (Storm Cat). His great sire is Mr. Prospector and you can see some of him in TC. TC raced 33 times and nearly all of his races were at Golden Gate Fields. He retires from racing with a hairline ankle fracture that should rehab nicely given time. Because he is so nicely put together and not too big he should be a very rice riding horse after his rehab period is completed. He is currently in the Bakersfield area in foster care. TC has no sponsors for his rehab. Please consider becoming TC's friend! He's a very loving and amiable guy.

Update - October 2012

We would like to thank TC's new sponsor Sally Cruikshank. TC sends back a huge neigh of appreciation. Turns out he is a total sweetheart that loves to be handled and groomed and stands very quietly absorbing all the attention lavished on him by his caregivers.

Update - December 2012

Yay!!! It's nearly New Year's Eve and TC has been cleared to start work again. Dr. Strickland was amazed at his healing. We looked at the xrays and he is now sound in the ankle. Lots of stall rest, love, MSM and other joint supplements and a whole lot of luck as well. Very happy with this news!!

Update - January 2013

OK--so now everyone has fallen madly in love with TC. He's sound and it turns out he loves to work and is a dream to ride. He has an incredibly nice trot and canter. Don't miss out on a really good horse. Volunteers are putting their heads together and figuring out how to keep him in the program. Act before they succeed and he's off the market!!!

You can read about TC, Johnny and Adam in these lively blogs that Tahlia Fischer writes. Tahlia has taken TC into foster care and he is currently in Bakersfield, CA. The blogs contain more current photos and information and give you real insight into the horses as well. TC is now being ridden regularly on trail. This sweet gelding needs to to find his forever home and person.

Update - August 2013

TC has been adopted by Tahlia Fischer as she could not give him up when a qualified and serious adopter presented themselves. That's what sometimes happens when you foster.....you fall hopelessly in love!! Congratulations to Tahlia and TC. Tahlia .....sell plenty of Gallopp Wines to help support your horses!!
