Adoption Overview $500

Faith

If you have a soft spot for off-track thoroughbreds, look no further than Faith! We don't know much about Faith's early days and racing career, but she was well loved by her previous owner and had a successful second career under saddle. She has been out of work for a few years now, and she was diagnosed with mild kissing spine in 2015. She is a petite lady and a bit out of shape at the moment, so helping her build muscle to support a healthy, strong back will be step one. We have just started her back in work with lunging and long-lining with the goal of getting her strong enough to carry a rider again. She is barefoot currently but may need shoes if brought back into any kind of regular work. She has turned out with a variety of horses and gets along great with mares and geldings. She could make a really nice companion horse with proper introductions and management. Sometimes mares get a reputation for being feisty, and sure she'll make a grouchy face from time to time if she thinks you're going to steal her dinner, but overall she is a laid back and affectionate horse who just wants to munch on her hay and take naps in the sunshine. She stands patiently for the vet, farrier, grooming, and bathing - she'll even let you wash her face! Trailering is stressful for her, so we're hoping to book her a one way ticket from our farm to yours. She would do best with an experienced owner/handler to help give her calm confidence and guidance - she is willing to please and will follow your lead. If you love OTTBs as much as we do, you'll fall in love with Faith!
