Ocala Jim has completed his stay with Racing For Home and has been adopted by two wonderful new owners. Lindy and Adam Gutman, who are part of the Funky Munkey Racing Syndicate who previously owned Ocala Jim, reached out to us to ask if they could give him a new home, and we were thrilled to make it happen. During his stay with us after being rescued from the kill pen, Ocala Jim added almost 300 pounds to his emaciated frame and now looks like his former racehorse self. Here are the comaprison pics of him when he was at the acution, and on the last day he was with us before moving to his new home:
He will now reside at a beautiful farm in Maryland under the Gutman’s watchful eye, and they have promised to keep us posted on his progress. We are so happy for our boy!
