Description

If ponies could talk, what a story Rosie could tell! This one-eyed wonder pony was surrendered to Safe Harbor when her owners could no longer provide basic care. She's had kids climb all over her, but she was never formally trained to ride. She came to rescue from neglect with an untreated eye injury that caused her a great deal of pain. Rosie’s eye was not able to be saved, but in the process of becoming a one eyed wonder pony her life changed for the better. Rosie gained new life–a life free of eye pain, and learned to love and trust people once again. This little redhead needs a home where she can be a companion, and she does great in a pasture with one or two other horses. She would be an ideal match for someone who needs a buddy horse for a show horse or a trail rider who doesn’t want their main riding horse to be home alone all the time. Rosie doesn’t mind staying back. Another option for her would be to be the only horse for a family that just wants a pony to love, groom and pet. She is in a foster home with young children and does well with humans of all ages. She’s been around livestock including sheep, goats and chickens, pastured next to cattle, and pastured with minis and another pony.

Rosie has completed equine good citizen training - she stands tied and for the farrier and vet. She is good for grooming and general handling.

Rosie’s fee is waived - we are simply seeking the right home for her! Fill out an adoption application for Rosie at www.safeharborhorses.org/adopt
