Big Brown gets a bath from Michelle Nevin and one of his grooms. Co-owner Rick Iavarone said his whole family has gotten to know the colt. "I have spent endless hours at the barn over the last couple of months just spending as much time as I can just being around this horse," he said. "He has a mind frame and a mentality like no horse I've ever been around. And I feel comfortable enough around this horse that I had my two daughters, six and eight, inside his stall on his hay bed, feeding him peppermints, and I'm telling you, it was like they were playing with a puppy. It was just an unbelievable experience. And I'm just sad there wasn't a camera there, because it was experience I'll take away forever." ( Meena Hartenstein/ABC News)
