Old Friends, the popular Thoroughbred retirement facility located in Georgetown, KY, debuted the first in a series of virtual farm tours Monday that will allow visitors to continue to monitor the activity of the farm's over 100 equine retirees during this time of the COVID-19 quarantine.

“Monday Mornings With Michael,” is, as the title implies, hosted by Old Friends founder Michael Blowen and will feature brief visits with a handful of horses each week. Old Friends is posting the clips across its social media channels and also at the Old Friends website and YouTube channel.

The first instalment was uploaded Monday (see below) and features two of Old Friends' oldest retirees, the 32-year-old Dinard and one-time claimer Archie's Echo, 31.

There is no charge for watching the videos, but Old Friends welcomes donations, which can be made on Facebook by using the donate button (via PayPal) or Network for Good.
