Thoroughbred • Black • Mare • 15 Hh • DOB 2007
Zahara is a stunning black Thoroughbred mare that was born in 2007. We were told that her original owners gave her to someone years ago. In 2012, while at that home, she sustained a neck injury. Dr. Michael Porter took x-rays which indicated a fracture at C-4/5. In 2014, her original owners took her back. Not long thereafter, the owners called Dr. Porter because Zahara was looking poorly. Dr. Porter found her to be very thin and depressed. He called us and asked the question – could we take her? Of course we would!
Zahara was transported to the rescue where she settled in nicely. She was vetted, her teeth were done, and her feet were trimmed. Her rehabilitation program went well. She just needed a proper diet – there was no medical condition that led to her being skin on bones. Dr. Porter x-rayed her neck to compare it to the original injury and he was amazed at how well it had healed! She’s a very pleasant and honest mare. While Zahara will never race, jump, or pull a cart or buggy, she will make a nice trail or companion horse.
Zahara has not as yet been started under saddle. She will require an experienced horse person with a background of training horses using natural horsemanship techniques. A training plan will be included in the adoption contract. If interested, please take time to read our adoption procedures/requirements information, that can be found on our Adoption Page.
