Confetti Crossing

I found Confetti Crossing, aka Grace, at the New Holland slaughterhouse in Pennsylvania several years ago. The only other bidder was the meat dealer. She is a lovely mare by Festive out of Nearcross. She raced at Delaware Park, but never won a race, which is most likely why she ended up at New Holland.
Her rescue story has appeared in the book, An Apple a Day, and was featured in The Equine Journal and Sidelines magazines. Grace has been shown locally in both dressage and hunters and was champion or reserve every time shown. At two shows, she won every class entered. Most of all, Grace is a beautiful pet and friend.
