UPDATE: September, 2019: CONGRATULATIONS Gerry, Montana and Cassie! We are so excited that Cassie has found a loving home :)
Cassie is in her early 20s, and we believe she is an Arabian or Arabian/Morgan type cross. Cassie was abandoned behind the fire lines on Porter Creek Road during the Tubbs fire in October 2017. She and her companion survived the fire and the days following, but the horses were in rough shape and the experience was hard on them. Sadly, her companion had to be euthanized.
Since then, Cassie has sort of bounced around our foster care program. It's hard to adopt out older horses, and it's especially hard to adopt out older horses who have a "mare face." That's a nice way of saying Cassie is a grouch. Cassie is like a candy with a sweet soft center and a crunchy exterior. Her "mare face" is all bluster. She's safe as they come and she wants so badly to have someone fuss over her and feed her treats and tell her she's pretty, but she pins her ears and snakes her head and people walk away. It makes us so sad, to see Cassie misunderstood. We know Cassie. She is quite sweet once you look past the crunchy exterior. Cassie needs someone who loves and understands cranky old mares. Embraces them, even.
