Additional Comments:
AAE took in this big, beautiful girl in November 2013 after relinquishment by her owner. Zara's relinquishment resulted from a financial distress situation. She was thin and needing attention. Zara seems to be a gentle giant...not a draft, but a big, quiet, kind mare. We were told she was a pacer. She doesn't have a visible tattoo under her lip, but does have an illegible tattoo on her neck. She loaded like a champ when we picked her up.

Update: Zara kicked a panel between her and Smokey a few days after arrival. She fractured her splint bone and developed a seroma that was draining. Due to ongoing draining (several weeks), AAE opted to surgically repair the crushed bone and seroma. Zara is healing after surgery.

February Update: Zara had some ongoing swelling and drainage after surgery; however, it finally appears to be resolving. We haven't had drainage for a week (yayyyyy!!), and swelling is finally reducing. Zara is a super mare. She stood politely in her stall for bandage changes every 2-3 days (day after day after day), and she tolerated her stall rest like a champ. However, she has a major issue walking through smaller gates/doors (like the stall door). She doesn't walk, she bulldozes through. When asked, she tries to contain herself; sometimes she does, and sometimes she doesn't seem able. She has now had her dental.

We shaved the tattoo on her neck and tracked down a bit of her racing history. We discovered she is about 11 years old (not 8, as we were told). She was bred in Indiana, and raced as a pacer at Cal Expo.

Adoption fee subject to change based on training. Please refer to website for current information.

Company / Facility:
All About Equine Animal Rescue Inc. - All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) is a 100 percent volunteer-based, 501c3 charitable, non-profit equine rescue and rehabilitation organization located in El Dorado Hills, California. AAE was founded in 2009 as a result of the down economy and growing number of distressed and auction-/slaughter-bound horses. Too many horses are being transported across US borders and commercially slaughtered each year, and many more inhumanely die each year from neglect, abandonment, abuse, or improper care. Most of our horses are rescued from a slaughterhouse-owned feedlot before they are transported to slaughter in Canada or Mexico. We want to make a difference. With your support, we can make a change. Your contribution means the difference between life and death, one horse at a time. “By saving the life of one horse, we may not be changing the world, but we are changing the world for that one horse.” Author unknown.

Avoid Scams and Fraud
Potential areas of fraud: wire transfer, moneygrams, money orders, cashier checks, shipping, escrow, "transaction protection", "guarantee". Check out the Buyer Safety section for more info.
