Adopted: April 13, 2014
Fit to Romp, now Maggie, is doing wonderfully at her new home! She has only been there for a couple of weeks, but already she looks like a different horse. She is absolutely thriving having a person of her own and her adopter loves her to bits. They have already had several rides together and Maggie has been wonderful.
Congratulations Melissa and Maggie <3 I look forward to hearing more about your many adventures together.

Fit to Romp is a 2009 Standardbred mare, approximately 16-16.2hh. She was born April 11 and had 30 starts in her career earning over $15,000. Last start was January 19, 2014. She arrived with her racing plates on, but has since been trimmed and is now barefoot; seems sound.
We finally got a chance to hop on her tonight. She is so mellow, we had to keep waking her up! She is green and needs some training, but this girl is definitely easy-going and willing to please. She is also broke to drive.
She loads and hauls, is easy to handle, good for the farrier and gets along with other horses. She has a personality that I would describe as being "cautious"; she thinks things through before she acts. Romp is most definitely one of the gentlest mares that I have ever come across; such a quiet energy about her.
