Promise is a beautiful dark bay mare who is finally ready for her new home. She currently stands about 14.3HH and is only about 3 years old so still has some growing to do. She will likely mature to around 15HH. When Promise came initially came into care, she had a large wound to her front left leg, and smaller infected wounds on her left hind. She required extensive wound treatment and care over several weeks. Thanks to the devoted care of her foster mom she has fully recovered and doesn’t seem to have any lasting lameness from her injuries.
Promise was found as part of a herd, but with no apparent owner to be found we weren’t able to learn much else about her history. She seemed to have some comfort around people, but had not been handled much.
Promise is currently in foster care where she is under active training for ground and foot work. Given her young age, and with her gentle demeanor, we think she has great potential and could be trained under various disciplines. She would make a wonderful partner for an experienced horseperson who is comfortable starting horses and has a patient and gentle approach.
