I don't know if anyone will be interested in following this, but here goes nothing. I am an intern at a Horse and Farm animal rescue in Saugerties NY called the Catskill Animal Sanctuary. I am an animal care intern and am working under the sanctuary's medical director.
We have a lot of horses, and even though we have a lot of animal loving volunteers there are only a couple of people who are really horse savvy. So I will be working with a few of our horses, the ones who have riding potential, to get them going and give them a better chance of finding forever homes! I thought it would be fun to start a journal thread to keep up with everyone's progress.
Here are the 5 horses I will be working with.
Hattie - Unbroke 8 year old Quarter Horse cross mare. Came from a hoarding Situation, no one knows what she went through but she is very skittish, I have worked with her the most so far and have gone from not being able to touch her to being able to catch, lead and groom her.
Mary Jane - 16 year old thoroughbred, apparently well broke, but no one has done anything with her in quite awhile. Very sweet easy to work with mare.
Monty - Young (not sure exact age) Unbroke something, no idea what he is, no one does, but he's stunning, some sort of warmblood maybe? 16 hands with great bone!
Brutus -16+hand thoroughbred. Unbroke, he and monty came from the same hoarding situation in 2011.
Pete - I don't have pictures of him yet, will get some on Saturday! He's a 15.2 ish hand bay thoroughbred, unbroke from the same hoarding situation as monthy and brutus I believe
I will keep updating this with their progress! So enjoy!
