Description

If you are interested in adopting this horse, please submit an Adoption Inquiry via AAE's website; No texts please: https://www.allaboutequine.org/how-to-adopt.html. Please note: Mags and Raye are a bonded pair.

Mags came to AAE in July 2020 from a distressed mustang sanctuary situation due to a health crisis. After 20 years of serving mustangs, the sanctuary was unable to adequately meet the needs of the horses. Mags was a bit timid and untrusting; however, with a slow approach, she was haltered and loaded fairly easily. She was thin and very lame on her hind left and we initially believed she had a large, chronic abscess. However, with her first trim, we discovered a deeply embedded, very stiff wire in her heel (previously not visible). Fortunately, Dr. Stolba was onsite for a makeover day (e.g. dentals, vaccines, microchips, and sedation, if needed, for hoof trims). About five to six days after removal, she was finally moving more normally.

Mags is a very sweet ol' girl! She's still not entirely confident with humans, but once haltered she seems to really enjoy grooming, accepts fly spray, and all four hooves can be handled, cleaned and trimmed, though the hind left is a bit stiff.

As far as we know and can tell, Mags was never started under saddle and due to her age and lack of confidence, she is not a good candidate as a riding horse. Mags is best suited for a companion home with someone that is easy-going, has low energy and enjoys the trust-building experience with horses and the bond that follows. She might even be suitable for an advanced beginner.

Soon after arrival at AAE, Mags was paired up with Raye, an older, partially blind mare. The two make a great team and Raye relies on Mags for some of her confidence. The two will be adopted as a bonded pair.

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