Persephone (Perci) is a dark bay/brown OTTB mare without a lot of white. She was emaciated and has made a full recovery at a rescue. She is ready to find a home that can use her to her fullest potential. Pictures from her journey can be seen at the following link, from day 1 onward. I do have videos of her as well, available on request. http://imgur.com/a/jVWdr
Perci is very sweet on the ground and easy to handle and is fine with dogs, goats, and chickens.... (read more) She leads, loads, stands for a farrier, enjoys bath time, and lunges. She did race and was a money earner. She's healthy and only in need of muscle right now. She is not a picky eater, has eaten anything I've put in front of her including Bute and paste wormer just sitting on her feed. She is not currently shod and is sound on our black clay. She will need shoes on her fronts on soft ground like sandy soil. Her feet are healthy and have good shape to them. Coggins and vaccinations are up to date. Her teeth have been recently done.
I have been on her and she is calm under saddle, a little on the lazy side. She rides well in a hackamore so far and will be staying in one until she shows me she needs something more. Her retraining should go very smoothly. Perci will walk, trot, canter/lope, and stop without issue.
Her movement is beautiful and I think she would make a great English horse which is why I haven't done much under saddle with her yet, I am a western rider. However, I will be putting the basics on her (walk, trot, lope, stop, back). She was exceptionally calm on her first ride and I expect her to take training really well. She has a very comfortable walk that isn't too forward. With work she could go any direction. I think she could do well as a barrel horse or trail horse if you're wanting to go western. Any avenue is open for an English rider, she is well put together for jumping.
Perci is middle of the herd when it comes to pecking order. If pastured with aggressive/pushy horses she will be the bottom. I've got a mixed herd right now and she's not mean to the young ones, but she has earned their respect. She won't fight back on the bigger ones and does not pick fights in the pasture.
She is a rich, chocolatey brown with a lighter muzzle and black legs, mane, and tail. She has some scattered white hairs on her forehead and a small amount of white on her hind left heel.
She has had a bout of cellulitis in a hind leg, but it has resolved and she is sound on it. Perci also had a heart murmur while she was emaciated and was checked for it again today (1/26/2016) and it is gone. She was retired from the track with some stress fractures in her front legs, but she has had several years off the track and has recovered. I spoke with the vet and the fact that she had fractures should not impact her future performance in the slightest. She has never been bred. About as accident prone as any other OTTB I've met, but no serious injuries with me. She has not shown any symptoms of ulcers. Pre-purchase exams are welcome at buyer's expense.
Her registered name is PRIMED N WILLING and she is listed on allbreedpedigree.com and her tattoo reads O22078.
All of the information provided is to the best of my knowledge and any injuries listed are honest and explained to the fullest extent possible. She is a rescue so part of her history is unknown. She will come with a contract, terms can be discussed. Prefer in-state adoption, open to out-of-state. Price is an adoption fee and is not negotiable. Payments accepted.
