****ADOPT DAISY BEFORE MARCH 20, 2014 (1st day of Spring) AND RECEIVE $50 OFF HER ADOPTION FEE****
Daisy is a pretty 16H to 16.1H 15-year-old dark golden chestnut American Saddlebred mare with flaxen mane and tail. Her registration papers are up to date with the American Saddlebred Registry. She was rescued from a local auction after serving as an Amish buggy horse since she was two years old. Fortunately, she was better cared for than some buggy horses are. She was excellent to lunge and ground drive from day one even though she never had any formal training as a youngster. (Her first Amish owner purchased her as a 4-month-old filly at her dam's side.) She is easy to bridle and tack up, picks up her feet nicely for cleaning and for the farrier, loads and unloads nicely on a trailer and is now doing a lot better with "scary" stimuli after being worked with on hypersensitivity for several months. Although not broke to ride when rescued, she now accepts a rider willingly and will stand quietly next to a mounting block. She has a current negative Coggins. She is wormed regularly and has her feet trimmed regularly. She does fine in a pasture boarding situation or with a stall as long as she gets lots of regular turnout and is handled regularly. Ideally, I would like someone to adopt her close to home so that he or she can spend some time getting to know Daisy before she would be re-located, but all good homes will be considered. She likes the slower western gaits best and would make a nice partner for recreational driving or as a trail horse. She has been ridden under both western and english tack. An adoption fee and contract are required. Daisy is currently doing well w/t under saddle, is cantering on the lunge line and cantering free lunged in the round pen. *The adoption fee includes the cost to transfer her registration.*
THIS BEAUTIFUL MARE WILL MAKE AN AWESOME PARTNER FOR THE RIGHT PERSON.
