Lakota (#Cloverdale12)

12 years old

Registered Buckskin and White Paint Mare

Lakota is a gorgeous 12 yo registered buckskin and white Paint mare. Lakota loaded up easily, but then struggled to figure out how to back out at her foster home, proving she hasn’t had a lot of life experience. But, after only a few days in her foster, she was tying and being bathed and groomed like a champ. She has proven to be willing to work hard to figure out what is being asked of her and be a good girl. She has some old scars on her body as testament to tough times, but there are only good things ahead for her. Lakota took great interest in a visiting child, so perhaps she could be a kids horse in the making?

UPDATE June 11, 2018: Lakota has now had all of her veterinary work completed- she has had dental work, vaccinations, deworming, and hoof care.  Her skin issues have been addressed and she is at an ideal, healthy body weight!  Her foster home is doing an incredible job working her 4 to 5 times per week on the ground, on the lunge line, and UNDER SADDLE WITH A RIDER ON HER BACK!  Yes- you read it right!  She is being ridden in the arena and she is going out on the trail.  Her foster barn reports that she is a willing, behaved, intellgent, sound mare and she is going to make someone a wonderful horse! These photographs were taken today (6-11-2018)- what a beautiful mare!
