n.— «“I really like it,” Noctor said earlier this week, after finishing her morning job, which is called hotwalking. “I have a lot of fun doing the hotwalking.” A hotwalker is someone who walks a horse to cool it down after a workout or a race. When she first arrives, she’ll also walk some “cold” horses around the stable area. Those are ones who haven’t yet gone to the track for their exercise.» —“Noctor’s job involves horses, humans” by John Packett Richmond Times-Dispath (Virginia) Aug. 4, 2006.
