Twiggy is a 2011 Nurse Mare orphan. We have tons of pictures and you can read more about her rescue and her progress on our web site. She came in with horrible urine burns and a fungal infection that had taken most of the hair on her face and some spots on her body as well. She was our youngest nurse mare foal and not one we'd planned on, but she clearly wasn't doing well and we couldn't leave her behind! Twiggy's hair has grown in and she is a healthy and lovely young lady. Per our vet, these babies will not have any lasting health issues after their rough start. Twiggy is halter-broke and picks up her feet. As Twiggy grew, it became pretty clear that Twiggy is probably foundation quarter horse bred and will have the strong and stocky build to do any kind of a job.

Update June 2014: Our little Twiggy has grown up to be a lovely young lady! She has a great mind and is extremely willing to please. She is the type of horse that grasps concepts very quickly. We have just lightly started her undersaddle and she is doing very well. Twiggy is ready to go to her forever home where she can be finished the way YOU want her to be finished!

July 2014: Twiggy continues to impress us during her training sessions. She loves having a job and is extremely willing. Twiggy has been ridden both inside and outside. She crosses water without thinking twice. She has been ridden both English and Western. Twiggy is ready to go to her forever home ans show everyone how great she is.
