Piper came into care in January 2022 slightly underweight and in need of dental and hoof care, lice and tick treatments and deworming. She does have mild carpal arthritis, possibly from being on the track (unfortunately her tattoo is illegible so we have not been able to find any history on her), but no lameness has been noted while in care and she is a very nicely put together mare.
She is an approximately 11 year old thoroughbred, standing at around 15.3hh.
Piper is wary of new people and will need someone experienced and patient to gain her trust. She does stand well for the farrier and knows her stuff, she just needs consistent care and to build a relationship with someone who has the time to put into her.
With one-on-one time and consistent care, Piper will do really well. She has already come a long way in a short time since being in care.
Location: Salmon Arm
