Faith is a 12 year old Appaloosa mare who came from a home on Vancouver Island after her owner passed away. She was taken in by a local woman who is unable to continue caring for her and so she has come to us to find a new home. The lady got her teeth and feet done and has been halter-broke. She is a very sweet girl who has come a long way but still has quite a journey ahead of her. She stands approx 15.2hh and is healthy and sound with no known injuries, but is underweight and needs a chance to put on some pounds.
She has been saddled and started to learn to lunge as well, but is not yet broke to ride. She will need more TLC and weight before she can be started for riding, so she is looking for a knowledgeable home that is able to finish her rehab and who has the skills or means to get her going under-saddle. She will remain with us to continue gaining weight until the right home comes along.
UPDATE [MARCH 1, 2017]: Faith had a wonderful visit from Special FX Equine Massage Therapy. Courtney did a great job on her and you can already see how much better she is feeling. She was an absolute sweetheart to work with :) She really needed an adjustment and now that she has had one we can concentrate on putting some weight on her.
UPDATE [MARCH 29, 2017]: Finally a bit of a break in the rain to take Faith's sheet off. She still has along way to go, but is gaining weight nicely. She will be on pasture soon and getting chubby in no time :)
She is located in Maple Ridge and her adoption fee is $500. Contact us via PM or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if interested!
