Adopted: June 12, 2016
Dana was adopted as a surprise for a young woman who really wanted her. We helped her mother surprise her with her as a gift and it was nothing but tears of joy when she arrived! She has since settled in and been renamed to Nevada. She is doing great and they are slowly starting to introduce her to the saddle.
We are very happy for this girl and are excited to continue to watch her progress :)
HEIGHT: Approx 15hh
RIDER LEVEL: Advanced
SUITABILITY: English/Western Pleasure, Trail Riding, Dressage, Jumping, etc
LOCATION: Maple Ridge, BC
ADOPTION FEE: $500
Meet our latest save! She was rescued from the stockyard with the funds donated in memory of Dana Lacroix and, as such, we have dubbed her "Dana".
She came with no info; all we know is that she was previously kept in South Langley. She stands approx 15hh and is maybe around 10 years old or so. Poor thing is very scared, but she is trying. She looks to be in good condition and seems sound though she needs her hooves trimmed. If anyone recognizes her, please let us know! Would love to find out more about this sweet girl.
UPDATE [May 17, 2016]: I spent some more time with this girl today. True to her namesake, she is the sweetest and gentlest soul you could ask for. She follows like a dog and when I scratched her wither, she returned the favor by nibbling my arm. She leads, loads, hauls and picks up her feet like the perfect lady and has been calm and quiet in her paddock. She was very unsure of the bit in her mouth today and tried to spit it out repeatedly. As she has been through a lot recently, I took the bridle off after just a few seconds and we were both happy to go back to wither scratches. She will be getting a massage and a hoof trim tonight and will hopefully be pregnancy checked tomorrow, if we can rearrange our work schedules.
UPDATE [May 19, 2016]: Dana, is all smiles after finding out that she is not pregnant :) She has had many babies in the past so she has developed a fairly matronly figure but that will be taken care of as soon as she gets in shape! We are still unsure if she is broke, but we will spend some time with her this weekend to find out. She will go up for adoption on Sunday with the standard adoption fee of $500. We have had a lot of interest in this beautiful lady so get your application in now if you would like to be considered as a potential family.
She is currently located in Maple Ridge. Her adoption fee is $500 to an approved home with a signed adoption agreement and a trial period. Contact us or submit an adoption application today if you are interested in her
