Ellie is an 10 year old red roan mare, just over 15.1H, weighs about 1200 lbs. Ellie came to us with very little handling and has since been halter trained with work on ground manners and some round pen training. She is a friendly, intelligent and willing girl who stands well for the farrier. She is calm enough to let you sit on her when she is lying down and sunbathing.
Because of lack of hoof care as a youngster, Ellie’s right hoof grew outward which forced her knee inward. The vet says she will probably not be sound for trail riding, although she is not currently lame. She would make a friendly and easy-keeper companion horse. As with all of our mares, there is a “no breeding” stipulation in her adoption contract.
Ellie has been placed in a long-term foster home.
