Adopted: February 25, 2014
Feedom has finally arrived at home in Calgary alongside his brother, Magic. Both boys hauled home well and I bet they are happy to finally have their own family.
A little more nervous than Magic, Freedom is cautious about his new home but he was happy for treats and I think once he realizes he is somewhere safe and loved, he will flourish.
We can't wait to hear about his progress!
AGE: 9 years old
HEIGHT: Approx 14.2hh
RIDER LEVEL: Experienced
SUITABILITY: Companion, Pleasure Riding, Trails, etc.
LOCATION: Maple Ridge, B.C.
ADOPTION FEE: FREE to an approved home*
Freedom was rescued from a kill pen in Sunnyside, WA along with three other Arabian geldings. He is 9 years old and is approx 14.2hh. He is very nervous and unsure. He is not mean, but he gets overwhelmed quite easily. He is very curious and he wants to be friends, but he will require someone with a lot of patience and willingness to work with him if they want to make him into a riding horse.
He has come a long way since arriving at the rescue in the beginning of September. He is not as shy anymore, but does require patience when handling as he can be a bit hard to catch and he is unsure, so benefits when you take your time - treats help as well as a positive reinforcement tool. His only vice is that he is very nervous about picking up his feet, so he will need an owner willing to work with him on that and a patient farrier. Otherwise, he just needs someone willing to put the time into bonding with him. He has really started to come out of his shell in the last two weeks, so he needs an experienced owner to continue with that.
Freedom would make a great companion and maybe one day a riding horse, but not without some work. He really needs his own person and his own space though so that he can bond with a new person. These boys have been through a lot and they deserve at least that.
*We would like for potential adopters to use the waived fee on a trainer to ensure that he gets the proper start in his new home.
