Found out about this gal on Craig’s List this week. I’ve been in contact with her owner and am desperately trying to help find her a home. This mare deserves to not worry about anything the rest of her days. She’s only 20 and in relatively good shape. The moment I saw her photo she spoke to me and I know she’s special. If anyone would like to add her to your herd, please contact her owner.  She meant to be India’s final home but their lives have drastically changed and she’s had to make this devastating decision. The following info is from the ad:

India is a 20 yr old Black w/ left rear sock Tennessee Walker-Draft cross mare ready for forever home that will ride her lightly or just use her as a pasture mate for another horse. I need to find her a home ASAP, due to my other mare being sold and leaving this coming Fri, 6/25. She is as gentle as they come–completely quiet and safe… Would work for a camp that has a therapeutic riding program, but she would have to be used sparingly. Her life was one of hard service to her previous owners–been there done it all, kind of life. She was a barrel horse for many years and ridden very hard–so she does have some arthritic issues that prevent her from riding fast and long, nowadays… She has a heart of gold and would do well for someone looking for their son’s/daughter’s first horse–to learn what a horse is all about the safe way… Will only consider the right family with the right intentions for India, she deserves the very best for the remainder of her life… Small adoption fee for now–although, the right home is the most important consideration and will be given to the right home, if the right fit is found… if you are a KILLER/MEAT PACKER–DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!… We are in a very unsure and hard situation workwise and homewise (selling it at the moment) and I need to find her the right home soon…Call Ana@407-971-1199.
