- Both Thoroughbreds
- Both geldings
- Both have had colic surgery w/ resections done
- Both have a blog! -->JH's blog http://johnhenryhorse.blogspot.com/
But that is basically where the similarities end. John Henry is a famous racehorse with winnings of over $6 million that is known to be ornery and "mean"(though I have seen lots of sweet pics of John). Lester aka Little Bit Wet only won one of his 7 races for a total winnings of a little over $4k:-) and he is VERY sweet and easy going. Lester also takes any medicines I have to give him like a real champ where as there our stories of having to trick, lasso and flat out give up on some days when it comes to giving John his meds.
I enjoyed this article from 2003 about John Henry recovering from his colic- http://www.bloodhorse.com/articleindex/article.asp?id=17141
