December 1st - December 31st
Bruce is an 11 yr old retired Thoroughbred race horse. He won over $100,000 in just a couple of years of racing. He liked that job, but even though his legs were wearing down, he I beat everyone running. But Bruce knew there is more to life than running. His trainer was his best friend, until she tragically passed away. Now, he is a head coach for a suicide prevention program at Second Chance Ranch. And he loves to paint! He paints with the people who visit him, or sometimes they just talk. Last year the Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) awarded Bruce the “2019 Thoroughbred of the Year Award” for his work as a coach. This year, he was inducted into the Horse Stars Hall of Fame by EQUUS and the USDF. Like No Giveaway, Bruce is asking Santa for a size 81 medium weight waterproof turnout blanket ($110), Tight Joints supplement ($72 for a 60 day supply), and licorice and peppermints (a 350 count tub of Sweet Stripes is $14).
