Meet the newest member of our family. A Premarin mare for many years, this lovely mare was standing on the auction lot when she was purchased for riding. To her good fortune, the potential rider suffered an injury that took riding out of his equation. She was headed back to the auction lot when a sweet elderly woman happened to meet her. She was horrified at the thought of this enormous mare being sent to slaughter. In her words, "I ran home to collect my money thinking all along how I was going to explain this to my sister. You see, I am on social security and I live with her, and well, we don't know a thing about horses, and actually....we have a yard full of goats!"
I was entertained by this woman's candid explanation of this not-so-small-predicament! And she continued, " I just knew in my heart this would all work out. So, I have to share with you Lynn dear, it is all working out just fine. Angel likes to help with the laundry you see, and when I am hanging the linens out on the line, she stands quietly holding one garment at a time until I am ready. Have you ever heard of such horse behavior? Oh and she babysits my great-grandson. I peek out the window and see them reading books, walking the yard or just visiting. She just tickles my heart! "
I asked Dorthy to send me pics of Angel, explained we would raise the money to haul her to us and promised to take good care of her. What we didn't know is that Angel truly lives up to her name. Sweet, gentle, smart and so willing, she is an excellent horse for children's work.
We welcome Angel to PMRF ! Enjoy the pic's! (When we get one of her doing laundry, I promise to share!!)
