Zoey is a very skinny owner surrender who is currently in rehab. She is an 8 year old unraced Thoroughbred mare. She is registered as "Count on Annie" and born May 3, 2006. She is approx 15.3-16hh. She is a very well-bred mare going back to Bold Ruler and Native Dancer.
She is a very sweet girl, but it is clear that she has had quite a rough life recently and needs a lot of TLC. She has settled in well at the rescue so far this week and is currently getting hi-fat feed (Step 8) and good quality local hay. Her teeth seem to be in good shape. She needs her feet done, but otherwise seems sound.
I found an ad for her from when she was 3 years old (so five years ago), which stated the following about her:
Count on Annie (a.k.a "ZOEY") 3 year old chestnut Thoroughbred filly. This 15.3 hh filly was born to dazzle and succeed. She was bred to race, but found herself too slow in training. Great confirmation, big strong feet, sound . She loves to be brushed , bathed and lunged. An excellent winter project for the rider looking for a show horse in the spring. Wonderfull floating trot and gracefull canter. Soft mouth excellent maners under saddle.Ridden weekly in lessons. Good with farrier, vet and gets along with other horses. She is registered with jockey club and comes with her papers. Zoey has had professional training and has 2 new front shoes. Up to date on all shots and has just been wormed. ** ZOEY JUST COMPETED IN HER 1st SCHOOLING SHOW GETTING RIBBONS IN ALL 5 FLAT CLASSES INCLUDING 1st OUT OF 10 HORSES IN HUNTER UNDER SADDLE CLASS !!! SHE IS ON HER WAY TO A FABULOUS SHOW FUTURE ** Zoey requires a quiet, confident rider to help finish developing her into the champion she is destined to be. $1500 OBO.
[MAY 8, 2014 UPDATE]: Zoey has officially been with us now for a month and she is doing fantastic. She has filled in a ton and is a very happy and sweet girl. She has had her feet trimmed, she has been dewormed and she has had two massages from our sports equine therapist in-training.
