Adopted: April 22, 2012
Adele is an amazing mare who survived a $12,000 colic surgery and lives to tell the tale! She has since been adopted with most of her after-surgery-care complete and she is still recovering well at home.
BARN NAME: Adele
AGE: 19 y/o (DOB: 06/05/1992)
RIDER LEVEL: Beginner - Intermediate
SUITABILITY: Pleasure Riding, Trails
ADOPTION FEE: n/a
Adele is a sweet girl who is easy to handle, loads and unloads and gets along well with the other horses. She needs some TLC, but she appears otherwise sound and healthy. She is well-broke and an easy, easy, easy girl. She would be fine for a beginner rider and suited for trails or pleasure riding a couple times a week once she finishes filling in.
Adele had to go in for major colic surgery, which she is recovering nicely from, but she does need four weeks stall rest and four to six weeks in a small paddock. She is currently in a foster home, but still available for adoption.
