Well folks, it's official, Sawyer is OUTTA HERE. Our first program foal has been adopted, and has gone to an excellent, young-horse experienced home. His foster Mom will miss him, but she's thrilled he's going to such a great home. Sawyer was born at the foster barn, after his mother was seized while pregnant. He's spent two years growing up there, and is ready for his next steps. It is because of the wonderful foster barns in our program and the donations and support of our community that horses like Sawyer can have a happy ending. Farewell kiddo, have fun!
Sawyer is now nearly 1 year old and he is growing up to be a sweet, gentle gelding! He is showing athletic ability and eagerness to learn. His foster parents report that he is quite the jumper--clearing both 5 foot and 6 foot high fences in his pasture when he decides that he wants to be with his friends in the next field over. He is current on all of his vaccines, deworming and hoof care and he is looking for that "forever someone" who will make him a family member and unlock his potential.
Sawyer is now 8 months old and is a gelding! He is turning out to be an athletic horse with a good mind. Sawyer recently surprised his foster home, an experienced warmblood breeder, by jumping out of his pasture--over a 6-foot fence. Sawyer is ready to move on to a new home where he can continue to grow and receive an education.
Sawyer is now 5 months old and a beautiful, correct colt. He is handled daily and is used to being groomed and having his feet picked. He appears to have some Quarter Horse breeding, making him likely a Thoroughbred-Quarter Horse cross, or something similar. Sawyer will be gelded this month, and will be weaned after December. He is available for adoption now along with his mom, or separately in January. This is a NICE baby with serious sporthorse potential.
Sawyer and Primrose are doing great. Sawyer is growing up health and strong in the foster home!
6/15/14 We are so proud of "Sawyer"- the first horse born in the CHANGE Program! He is a beautiful Thoroughbred cross gelding! His mother Primrose, a 10-year-old Thoroughbred mare, gave birth to him while in foster care at 4:33 a.m. on Sunday, June 15, 2014. His foster barn family was there for the event and got to choose his name.
