Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape by Miranda N. Prather
Although he was no American Pharoah on the track,
Blue Blue Sea finds his "cape" in retirement.
by Miranda N. Prather
Blue Blue Sea was born of racing royalty in Paris, Kentucky, at Elm Tree Farm. He trained to become a racehorse, running at a variety of tracks, but never was able to achieve fame and fortune. In 2004, Miranda N. Prather found him via the CANTER website and took him home to be her jumping horse. In 2006, he became very ill and nearly died. He was diagnosed with a disease like Crohn’s and given 1-2 years to live. Miraculously, with diet changes, Blue Blue Sea went on to live another seven years, becoming a trick horse and inspiring thousands of people around the world via his Facebook page. His story has especially resonated with those facing serious, long-term illnesses. Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape tells the story of this real-life superhero horse and is the first in a planned series that details his adventures.
