I just spoke to the sister of the owner of the mare in question that needs a home. According to Pam, the sister of the horse's owner who was bucked off and is being removed from life support today, this horse needs to live in a pasture, or be restarted with someone with a high amount of experience. She stated the horse is not safe to ride at this time.
The horse had been used as a cattle pony prior, but was exhibiting extreme ranges of behavior. She said sometimes she would appear sweet, and other times would buck and show extreme signs of agitation and be extremely difficult to handle.
Pam can be reached at 775-721-5768, but please only contact her if you are a serious re-home, as the family is going through a very difficult time with the loss of her sister.
Sounds like this horse could be a pasture pet or be adopted by someone who has high-level experience in training. We still want to find her a home, but it is utterly important that she go to the right person so no one else gets injured.
Our prayers go out to the family, and I would ask that everyone else add their prayers also. The family has suffered such a loss, and my heart goes out to them.
Thank you for any help you can provide with the rehoming of this mare.
