2/15/13 Lex is getting ready for a new home, and a new under saddle video has been posted below.
2/13/13 Lex is doing really well and is looking for his new home. A handsome gelding who has good manners and is fun and comfortable to ride. Moving soundly and ready to go on to a new future!
6/19/12 Lex is now up for adoption. He is energetic and likes to move out so he requires a more experienced rider. He is going sound, but does have some possible arthritis in either his hock or his stifle joint from his racing days- but he is nice and forward and willing and will make a really fun trail and pleasure riding horse. Lex ties, trailers and stands for the farrier. Lex gets along well with other horses.

11/25/09 Lex is staying fat and happy- but it is just such a shame that this really nice gelding will not stay sound so he can find a new home. Another victim of the racing industry.
7/24/09 Lex is fat and happy, but sadly, just won't stay sound on his hock. We are going to see if he can be used as a vet testing horse with the vet school we work with. He is such a friendly guy who loves to work, it's a shame that he just can't stay sound.

9/25/08 Lex is now looking for his new home. He does better in Western tack and will do best with an experienced rider. He has good manners, but is a more forward horse. He walks, trots, and canters, and has even jumped. A very beautiful gelding who needs a home of his own. Lex stands tied for grooming, bathing, tacking, and the Farrier. He trailers great.
Lexington is a very sweet gelding who came to Shiloh through the auspices of Angel Acres Horse Haven in PA. He was raced and is going under saddle. He walks, trots, and canters and does some jumping. "Lex" needs an experienced rider who will take their time and allow him to stay relaxed and confident.
Lexington was born in KY on February 26, 1998. His registered name is "Ball N' The Jack" and he is descended from Ack Ack and Olympio (winner of $1,456,315.00). Lex raced 30 times and won $32,429.00.

UPDATE: 11/20/06 Lexington has returned from his adoptive home. He was being trained as a Hunter, but just didn't fit what his adoptive owners were looking for. Lex is energetic and willing, but is still looking for that perfect fit. We will continue to work with him as we re-evaluate him for adoption. Lex has done some jumping and is very personable. Lex is a very flashy gelding who really catches the eye.
