Need help - Aged,sound mare lost home Central MA
Just when you think everything is good...something unforeseen happens. My lovely, sound but out of condition, aged mare has been in a companion home for the past 2+ yrs. She survived the tornado last yr. with trees crashing down around her. Her companion died , then another so now their owner is out of horses and my mare out of a job. :eek:
Unfortunately I am in FL and out of a job so there is no money to support this mare either in MA or FL. :(
In her day this was a forward moving, lovely strided English ridden trail horse. She is used to carriages ( she was the ridden horse accompanying trainer driving carriage horses on trails) , dirt bikes, snowmobiles, tractors and heavy equipment. I couldn't say she's bombproof, but sensible and thinks. She stayed in electric fence with trees crashing around her in tornado. She's happy in/out and is a VERY EASY KEEPER!! She'll stand for grooming and warm bath without tying. Low maintenence and a gorgeous pasture ornament and companion deluxe. It would never occur to her to bite or kick.
She is healthy, sound... just out of condition. I fumbled up on her bareback yesterday and she walked off like it was yesterday..not over 5 yrs ago.
This just breaks my heart. In years past I have rescued many horses.It breaks my heart not to be able to save this mare I bought at 3 mos..
Free long term/permanent lease. I just want to be a factor if she ever needs re-homing or in final decision.
Excellent references and pics available.
