Adoption Overview $1,000


Onyx is an 11-yr-old black beauty.  She and her foal, Tucker, were saved by the ranch moments before they were sent to slaughter.  Tucker grew into a beautiful young gelding while at the ranch and was adopted in 2021.Onyx is still waiting to find her forever family.
Previously untouched, Onyx is continuing to learn how to trust new handlers and has made great progress. She still can be a bit challenging to catch in a large paddock and has the tendency to bond with one person at a time. She halters, leads and performs in-hand obstacles well and competed in our 2022 Training Challenge where she and her handler won most improved! Onyx is also responsive when lunging in a round pen. She’s learned to trailer well and has improved greatly with the farrier though she still has some reactivity with her back hooves. Our trainers recently put a saddle and pad on Onyx and she responded very well.
