BEHS 1122- DAFFODIL
Daffodil came to Bluebonnet when her donor could no longer keep her. Her donor said they believe she is a Missouri Foxtrotter but her first foster home and foster home’s vet think she may be a Paso Fino cross.
Daffodil is a pretty easy keeper. She is very curious and can be very sweet, when she feels like it. She can be moody at times but that could just be the young mare in her.
Daffodil will be competing in the Non-Pro In Hand 12 & Up Division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with youth Concetta Shackett. She will be available for adoption at the Challenge during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo on October 17, 2020 in Taylor, Texas.
You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.
EVALUATION AND TRAINING
Daffodil leads, loads, and stands for grooming.
She's enrolled in the Fall 2020 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with a youth handler. They have been working on ground work, manners, and learning to navigate obstacles in hand. She has been saddled and longed with it, and has done well. This will give her a great foundation for her adopter to continue her training.
Daffodil is not broke to ride yet, because she’s a very light framed horse, and we would like her adopter to not start her under saddle until next year (2021). Her challenge partner says she will do best with an adopter that keeps her busy and working. She thrives on consistent engagement and having her mind kept busy. This young mare will make someone a great life long partner, and can go any direction her adopter would like to train her for!
