Zahara is a Thoroughbred that was born in 2007. We was told that her original owners gave her to someone years ago. While at that home, in 2012, 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 after, the owners called Dr. Porter out because Zahara was looking poorly. Dr. Porter found her quite 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 rehab program went well. Dr. Porter x-rayed her neck to compare it to the original injury and amazed at how it 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 horse or companion.
Zahara has not been started under saddle yet. 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.
