Marsha - approx.12 years old | Tennessee Walking Horse
Mello - approx. 6 month old colt | Tennessee Walking Horse
Meet Marsha and Mello!
Training Level: Halter
Adoption Fee: $800/each
Marsha and Mello are a mare and foal pair that came to us as a transfer from Colorado Horse Rescue Network after being seized by law enforcement with multiple other horses. They came to us unhandled and fearful of people and in need of some groceries and medical care due to being neglected. And yes, they are gaited!
Mello has become quite the friendly little colt! He is now halter broke, picks up his feet, stands for fly spray and just loves attention from people. He came to us with extremely crooked legs and we have had him on supplements and been doing corrective trimming and they are now straightening out and his hooves are growing much nicer. We plan to wean and castrate him soon and he will then be available to go to a new home.
Marsha has been aged at around 12 years old and was quite the protective momma when we got her, not wanting anything to do with people. She has since learned to be curious about them and although is still quite nervous, she can be caught and led around and is working on getting comfortable with her legs being touched so we can begin to pick up her feet. She has a lot of try but is still very fearful of people so is going to need someone patient and calm to help her continue to work through some of her fears and anxieties.
To help with her care and evaluation/training fees please donate here and specify "Marsha and Mello" in the comments.
*Adoption fee will increase with continued training*
