Adopted: November 3, 2016
We are thrilled to announce that Molly has safely arrived at her new home at In The Woods Animal Rescue in Peace River, Alberta.
Thank you North Peace Equine Transport for taking her home for us and thank you to Sheryl for making room to retire this sweet lady!
AGE: 17 y/o
RIDER LEVEL: Advanced
ADOPTION FEE: $FREE to an approved home
Molly is a 17 year old Appaloosa mare who came out of a herd off of Vancouver Island when her owner passed away. She arrived on June 24 and has spent the past two months putting weight on and becoming more comfortable with human interaction.
This pretty lady stands approx 14.3hh and has no health issues. However, Molly has spent almost her entire life in a small paddock and was never halterbroke or handled. As such, she shuts down when pressure is applied. We are still working to halterbreak her and she is just starting to enjoy pets and affection. She is quite unsure, though not as "wild" or timid as one might expect.
She is a very sweet girl who tries hard and wants to be friends, but unfortunately due to her lack of life experience and a small hitch in her hind end from spending her life in a confined space, we do not feel she will ever be a candidate as a riding horse. We are hoping that a loving person will step up and give this girl a home as a companion, preferably where she can spend the rest of her days roaming on pasture.
Molly is free to an approved, experienced home who has room for a pasture pet or is in need of a companion. If you are able to give this girl a retirement home, please contact us today.
