    Horsey retirement

    The owners of Tana are trying to find a retirement home for her, and I was asked to see if I wouldn't mind putting an ad out or two to see if we can find any/anyone would take her in.

    There is a caveat to her though...
    She was treated like a pet, and was never properly trained to ride, lead or do anything. She is a very respectful horse... Until you pull her out of pasture. She gets spooky easily and looks to people for safety, in that, she nearly runs into them because she doesn't think. She also had a history of tumors and has small cists on her that we try to get rid of when we can. She really is nothing more than a good pasture pet, but because of her handling issues, I wonder just how to write an ad?

    I want to have full disclosure, but I don't know how much is too much, and what I should say in person, and what I should put up online. I am guessing I will be the one presenting her because I worked with her the most, and her current owners are not that horsey.

    Well... You definitely got your work cut out for you, because they basically raised a meat horse.
    Unfortantely, I'm seeing well broke horses that are still looking for homes for free.
    A hard to handle, unbroke one? They might consider just euthanizing her.

    Thats what I was thinking... The owners are going to be very careful about who they choose. She's great as a pasture puff, just for anything else... a handful.
