Mystic came to Equine Voices in 2007 with a 6 month old colt at her side and another colt soon on the way. She came here with several other mares and their foals, most if not all of them untouchable. Mystic was born at a PMU farm and lived out most of her live on the pee lines. She saw many of her foals come and go, go where you ask? Most of them probably ended up on dinner plates across the world. In the past couple of months, one of Equine Voice's trainers, Dorothy, has been working with Mystic and the three other mares that still reside at this rescue. She is no longer afraid of humans and is starting to trust us more and more. She has come such a long way from where she used to be. The 'untouchable mare' can now be saddled and even ridden! Her energy has changed since her training first began. She turned from a frigid, scared mare to a clam, relaxed, and loving girl. This mare has opened my eyes to so many things, her story is just incredible. To see her transform as left an impression in my heart and I will never be able to forget her. I'm glad I get to share this story with you guys. When you look at these photos, just look at her eyes, her expression. You will see the excitement and pleasure she gets from training with Dorothy.
Mystic truly is a sole survivor.
