Crystal is a 15-year-old gray Arabian mare who was taken into the program after being seized by the Sonoma County Animal Control Department. She was underweight and in need of some serious TLC. Crystal is a gentle, sweet mare who loves being groomed and enjoys spending time with both people and horses. Crystal had melanomas under her tail. She is an easy keeper and gets along well with other horses.


Everyone seems to melt for the glamorous and sweet Crystal, whose expressive dark eyes are set off by her sparkling gray coat. She is thrived in foster care. Crystal ties, bathes, loads and trailers well. She was in foster care at a Sonoma County training stable and was schooled under saddle by a trainer.

Crystal gets along well with other horses, and is happy both in the pasture and the barn. She is now matched with a confident and patient handler who likes sensitive horses. This is a wonderful horse who was eager to start the rest of her life with a forever home.

Saskia wasn't even looking for a horse after losing both her long-time equines to old age last year. "I knew I'd get another horse someday," says Saskia, but after meeting Crystal quite by chance, "I knew she was The One."

Congratulations to Crystal and Saskia on their newfound friendship!
