Monroe is a young reservation mustang who came to AAE with Miles through collaboration with another organization at the end of December 2023. Monroe is not quite a two year old filly. Sadly, Monroe miscarried an estimated four-month-old fetus shortly after she was rescued (yes, at not even two years old). Monroe and Miles had been with a foster family who didn’t have much experience with mustangs. They were unhandled, and as a result, they hadn’t had any vet care, vaccines, or hoof care. There was no adoption interest, they weren’t making any forward progress with gentling, and there wasn’t another foster who could take them. The organization approached AAE with a request to transfer. Thankfully, AAE had several adoptions at the end of the year, which gave us the opportunity to help these two youngsters.

Monroe is a sassy little filly with a ton of confidence!  She is adorable, and she tries hard to understand!  She is curious, level-headed, and very willing. After quarantine and once the heavy rains let up, we had a chance to spend some quality time with this little gal to earn her trust. She’s halterable with a slow approach, she leads, and she’s willing to try what’s asked of her. She’s come a really long way in a short time! She was dewormed, and she had her spa day at the end of February (dental, front hoof trim, vaccines, and microchip). 

Monroe recently returned from the Monty Roberts International Learning Center where she spent three weeks participating as a student project in the 15-day Advance Course of Horsemanship where she went through the starting process: trust building, introducing tack, including a surcingle, long-lining, and a saddle introduction. It was a wonderful learning opportunity for her, and she came back to AAE with new skills and experiences.

Monroe is available for adoption, and she’s looking for a home with an experienced person to continue her learning and progress as she matures.

​Monroe is current with hoof and dental care, vaccines, and deworming, and she has a microchip.

In general, there is a lot of activity around AAE including foot traffic in and out of paddock/pasture areas, mucking with wheelbarrows, grooming and care activities, and weekly farrier visits.  There are various resident animals, as well as various wildlife  in and around paddock/pasture areas.  AAE is on a  busy road with high speed vehicles, trucks, and sirens.  Tractors and trucks are used in and around pasture/paddock areas.  Therefore, horses at AAE are accustomed to a more active environment as opposed to a quiet/sterile environment.
