I have to chime in on the above listing. I knew her when she was racing (with a different owner) and she was "on vacation" at the barn I boarded at several years in a row between running at the track.
This girl is awesome; she was turned out with geldings and sometimes with another mare. We rode her in english tack or bareback in the fields. She self loads and unloads.
She was barefoot at the farm.
I don't know why they have a strap around her neck, she does NOT crib.
Once she knew you, she was an absolute babe to deal with.
I so wish for her to find a good home, especially after seeing her feet in those pix. Gripes.
Please someone give Sissy an upgrade.
Agreed - that is no cribbing strap, and if it was it certainly would not work being that loose lol! It is just an identification strap that some people use at the farms for broodmares or yearlings (mostly on the big farms).
She's cute. katyb, a lot of times those fees are negotiable, and it is not an "adoption", it is a sale. CANTER is a listing service for TBs for sale by owners/trainers. Some of the CANTER sites do have CANTER-owned horses that they have rescued and adopt out, but the majority of the horses and the main function of the CANTER sites are to provide a place for trainers to list horses for sale. Kind of a pet peeve of mine when people say they adopted or rescued an OTTB when in fact they PURCHASED a horse for sale, plain and simple...
No offence to the folks that posted, just clarifying from an owner's prospective.
If I had time for another horse I would go get Lucky Forest,I own a Forest Camp daughter and she is such a great horse.She is also the bravest horse I have ever ridden,I have never seen anything that has spooked her.
She went on her first trail ride all alone,crossed water wooden bridges,etc and never even blinked.
Like him she is full of herself,but once you get in the saddle she is all business and very serious about her job.
Like Lucky Forest she is fine boned but she raced for 3 years and retired sound and clean legged.
I wish I had time for another horse because I would love another just like her,so please somebody get him!
Uggg poor mare. Seriously, OP states how easy she is, self loads, trail rides.. won a fair bit of money...
And now she hates men (reading between the lines), has neglected feet (they look painful).. and is residing in a crap hole. Sounds like her current people have been doing a fantasic job ruining a good horse.
I hate it when people want $2,000 for a horse, buy can't pony up $50 to trim her feet.
