UPDATE: June 2019: Just 12 years old, Ethel is sweet and built like a brick house. She’s also a good girl when being tied, groomed and having her feet cleaned. She’s a good solid citizen, willing and curious. Some of this barn life doesn’t seem so unfamiliar, although it is unknown if Ethel has ever been ridden. She seems familiar with tack- when we throw a saddle on her back to lunge her she doesn't bat an eyelash. Ethel ranks high in looks, personality and health. She would be a wonderful companion horse or to bring along as a training project. She is an attentive and eager learner and has been very well-behaved on the lunge line. She has received her vaccinations, deworming, and had her feet trimmed. Most importantly, she received much-needed dental work to correct pretty significant dental issues that were present merely because nobody had worked on her teeth before. Now, she is GOOD AS NEW and has a clean bill of health from the veterinarian. Through all of her rehabilitation, Ethel has been a team player and has trusted the people around her to help her. She is personable, gentle and loves attention. She is ready to be adopted into a forever loving home. Help us find Ethel her fairy tale ending soon- she has been in foster care for a year now and is ready for that special person to call her own.
