Adoption Overview $350

Cookie

Cookie is an approximately 19-20 year old Appaloosa miniature mare. She stands around 35” tall. Cookie needs to go to an experienced home at this point. She has the potential to be a really good girl with consistent handling, but she has some habits that will worsen if not handled frequently. Cookie will accept a saddle and a light leadline rider! We are not sure just how experienced she is under saddle, though, as sometimes she gets nervous. She has been hauled to local saddle club shows and did pretty well! She’s not really spooky in the arena or walking around. She did paw, pace and neigh a little while she was tied, but this behavior should get better with more experience standing tied. She’s not bad by any means and does not try to set back; she is just vocal when alone. Cookie will lunge nicely and hops right on the trailer. She seems to enjoy being worked with and doing ground work. She is not currently easy to catch, but she is getting better. Her foster is working with her frequently and her adoption fee is subject to go up as she progresses. The more she is handled the better she gets! She does really really well when handled frequently by an experienced person. Cookie will also need to be in a home with equine companions near her size as well as a dry lot with 24/7 access to hay. Her adoption fee is $350. The first step in the adoption process is completing an application. If interested, submit your app at hickoryhillfarmtn.org/apply.
