Hi there, my aunt recently passed away leaving 4 morgans. I am writing today about one who really needs a new home with someone who can do natural horsemanship with her.
Maynegate Angel Eyes is a really sweet 4 year old mare. She knows nothing. My aunt and uncle bought her as a yearling, and soon after my uncle's health failed. My aunt treated her horses as pets, but never really handled them. They were well fed, vetted, etc. but she was scared of the young ones so did nothing with them.
Now we have this 4 year old who is both totally uneducated and very frightened of just about everything. I have been working with her to try to get her HALTERED! She loves having me in the stall, nuzzles me, and has (after a long time in the stall) let me rub the halter all over her. But if I make a move to get it on - NOPE!
Today I went out and let her out through her small pen to the large one. She was petrified. She just wwanted back in her stall. Once I put an older mare out she would at least go out in her run with her.
I do not have the skill, time, or patience to work with her on a regular basis. I have been out of horses for many years and have no desire to have one again (I've suffered many injuries, and I'm sorry to say I've developed a fear)
She is lovely and has lovely bloodlines. I am the ONLY one in the family with any horse experience, and I know my cousins just want to get rid of her, not pay for any training. I have paid for the other 4 year old to go to training for a month, and get gelded, because he was a danger to the novices in the barn - but I can afford no more.
I hope someone might want to take her on. She is really, really sweet. I have contacted SO many people, Morgan lists, etc and can't get anyone to take these horses - I fear for their future.
