Shirley Castle "Charlotte" is a 14 year old Thoroughbred mare who was left in a field unhandled for most of her life! She was started under saddle this summer after many months of ground work and is ready for a new life with an adopter who is an experienced horse trainer. Charlotte isn't generally high energy but she can still get excited at times and has both reared and bucked when she's wound up. She should vet check clean, and does better in front shoes due to years of hoof neglect (feet look great now, but she's just happier with fronts on and more forward). Currently in training and getting trail experience. Adoption fee $1000.
Beau, now Belle, came in after a long history as a pony hunter and jumper with intermittent lameness. We have made some changes to the shoeing and to her general lifestyle, and she recently passed a soundness check at West Coast Equine with flying colors. We think she will always need a good farrier. Belle is extremely well trained but she has always lived as a show horse, and has had some trouble adapting to pasture life, showing significant separation anxiety over a donkey she was kept with. If you think you may be the right home for Belle, please send us an email! Adoption fee: $800.
