Whisper is a mare that was rescued from a kill pen and clearly has some previous training, but her past experiences have made her wary of humans. Born in 2009, Whisper is only about 15 hands, but very stocky and with nice conformation. She will approach you in the field, but she needs to be herded into a smaller paddock or stall in order to halter her (she loves treats!). Once haltered, Whisper leads well and stands for the vet and farrier, and other basic groundwork, but she has not been ridden under saddle.
With more time, handling, and training, we know Whisper will turn around quickly and continue to regain her trust in people. She would make a great riding horse with someone looking to have a project or a wonderful pasture pal, as she gets along very well with other horses.
Whisper is looking for a foster or adoptive home. Application is required. Whisper is up to date on all vet/farrier/dental/etc. care.
