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 quite thin and neglected. We were told she was a pacer and after we shaved the tattoo on her neck and tracked down a bit of her racing history, we discovered she is about 11 years old. She was bred in Indiana, and raced as a pacer at Cal Expo. She loaded like a champ when we picked her up.... (read more) Zara seems to be a gentle giant...not a draft, but a big, quiet, kind mare.
Subsequent to intake, Zara kicked a panel. 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. After a long healing process followed by a large hoof abscess, Zara has become a super mare. She stood politely (without a halter) in her stall for bandage changes every 2-3 days (day after day after day), and she tolerated her stall rest like a champ. She had a major issue walking through gates/doors; however, that is nearly resolved. With her track experience (e.g. harness, bridle/bit, etc.), she should transition smoothly to a riding horse. She is current with vaccines, deworming, and dental and hoof care.
