Ethel (#Cloverdale12)

UPDATE: July 2019:  Ethel got a bath as well as a mane and tail deep scrub! She's starting to relax with the hose and enjoy the pampering. Ethel is working regularly in the round pen and on the lunge line. Her foster mom is focused on giving Ethel the basic life skills she needs to be a solid companion horse.  If Ethel's adopter wishes to take her further, we believe that, with time and training, Ethel has the potential to become a saddle horse. However, she earns her keep as a sweet companion to horses young and old alike. Her specialty is taking care of weanlings and yearlings. Ethel's adoption fee is $150 to approved lifetime home. Please contact director@sonomachangeprogram.com or 707-570-7050 for more information about Ethel. 

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.  Please email  director@sonomachangeprogram.com for more information.
