Sugar's Info...

I am in need of an experienced adopter and rideable.

Sugar's Story...
Sugar is a 6 year old Mustang or stock breed mix mare and stands at about 14hh. She was seized along with many other animals from someone who was not supposed to own animals. Sugar is sweet but timid. She will require an experienced, patient and gentle handler who will be able to teach her new things without being too rough or overwhelming. Sugar has been worked with on loading and can now reliably be loaded into a trailer. She is learning how to tie and will stand quietly for a patient vet and farrier. Offering her back feet is still a little frightening for her but she is progressing every day, and she will gladly lift her front feet. Once Sugar learns that you aren't going to hurt her, she greatly enjoys being groomed. It is unlikely that Sugar has had any training so she is a nice, clean slate for you to take her in any direction you wish. She has beautiful and correct conformation and long legs. With quality, consistent training, she could be a sturdy trail horse, a flashy dressage pony or a reliable hunter/jumper mount. If you think Sugar is the kind of sweet mare you're looking for or you have any more questions, please email our farm caregiver at farm@whatcomhumane.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sugar, a Bellingham Mustang/Other/Unknown was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mustang/Other/Unknown for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Mustang/Other/Unknown from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bellingham breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Mustang/Other/Unknown breeders who help with Mustang/Other/Unknown rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
