What kind of terrible person would tie their horse to a tree BY ITS TONGUE? Check out this horse’s insane backstory.
From Craigslist Gainesville:
I have a nice Racking Mare, Flea bitten gray, 18 year old 1/2 Arab 1/2 TWH or Paso. She stands 14.2 and is wonderful on trail. She is a racking mare and throws her head often during the ride, I feel is out of excitement. She has gone endurance riding of 18 miles about a year ago and recently has done approximately 10 miles on average. She loves to go go go. Has excellent ground manners. She will stand ground tied while being untacked and follow you where ever you may go. She stands nicely for farrier too! Loads like a dream – but watch out, she will get in and out fast. Just step to the side and tell her to go and she is going. She is current on teeth float and not due again until November 2013. She is current on shots and coggins. We ride her in either western or Aussie and she neck reins just fine. She is currently ridden by my 16 year old son – who looks like he is riding a pony as he stands 6’3″ as you will see in photos – he looks funny riding her! She is well gaited and has an extended fast walk. She canters and also does a running walk that is really smooth. She is a rescue and came with an open registration – since I don’t breed my horses, I have never transferred them into my name.
Now her issues: She was tied to a tree by her tongue until her tongue ripped, so she does not like to be given wormer – I place it in her feed. She does not like to have water sprayed into her face at ALL! I normally just wipe her face with a wet cloth. She has an allergy to something in my pasture during the fall – not sure what it is, but we just place a fly mask on her and it keeps her from tearing up in her eyes. She does not like to stand when mounting, unless you have someone willing to hold her. She is ready to go as soon as foot hits stirrup. If you stop her, she will do these cute little bunny hops with her front feet – kinds like – lets go lets go. She normally does that when I am riding her babysitting another horse and the rest of the pack moves on.
If you have any questions that I have not covered, please feel free to call/text 352-two to six -one8seven4 or send me an email.
Will trade for motorcycle (cruising type at least 700 cc), running car ? let me know what you think I might be interested in.
