I'm such a sucker for animals, especially those that are past their primes and need some extra love. The volunteers here clearly love these animals and enjoy feeding them, talking to them and taking care of them each and every day. There is about a 1-1/2 hr tour where you learn many of the horses' stories and you get to... More

Want to get up close with some of the finest horses in the business? This is the place for you! Old Friends is a family friendly attraction that allows former race horses to live out their golden years with a staff that has a heart of gold. You won't find anyone more dedicated to the care of retired race horses... More

Old Friends is just a bit a heaven for anyone that likes horses. They ask nothing of those in their care and let them live as a horse should live. Michael Blowen (owner) gives everything he has to provide for the horses care. Volunteers on the farm have many wonderful stories to tell about the horses you visit and feed!

I heard from word of mouth about the Old Friends Equine in Georgetown, Ky and decided to visit since I was in the area. I am so glad I did because it was a feel good experience, something which doesn't happen too often in your life. I have been a horse racing fan for over 30 years. Definitely aware of... More

It is an amazing man who turned his land into a place were retired race horses could live out their remaining years. They let you feed and pet the horses and give you amazing history of the horses they have on the farm.

The work these people do to care for these older horses is outstanding. They give them all the care they need with nothing but love in return. I highly recommend taking a tour. The fee is only a donation of your choice to the farm. You will see some high $$ racehorses, some old retirees and even a miniature horse.......all... More

If you have any respect for the Thoroughbred horse, or even if you don't understand this breed and the racing industry, you MUST visit this retirement farm. You will touch, pet and feed lots of carrots and horse cookies to the famous, and sometimes forgotten, Thoroughbreds that were money-makers in their prime, but now are old men living their last...

Tour of farm where horses are brought when no longer able to run or sire. Great to see the horses have some where to go later on.

I love this place and commend Michael for following his dream and making a difference in the lives of our animal brethren. I've been here three times now and have enjoyed every visit thoroughly. I don't want to leave when the tour is over. Such a beautiful spot on earth. The horses deserve this retirement after earning their way in... More
