Willow's Info...

I am rideable and up to date with shots.

Willow's Story...
Willow is a 2006 (approximate) mare who stands about 15.2 hh. She trailers well, but needs a little work with the farrier. Willow has an odd gait (seems tender or shortened, although not lame) at the jog which may be permanent. She is receiving veterinary care for this and is comfortable.

Willow is a kind soul who would be good for an experienced beginner, or someone with a trainer to give her a refresher. Being an experienced horse, Willow needs a snug barn for bad weather. She would like a horse friend or another herd animal for company.

Willow seems to have trail experience, but a trainer should evaluate her skills as she has not been ridden in some time. Willow has been around dogs, cattle, ATVs, and more.

This horse is currently available for adoption, but is NOT being housed at the Whatcom Humane Society farm facility. She is being cared for at a private equine facility.

If you are interested in learning more about this horse or would like to set up a time for a meet and greet, please complete a Whatcom Humane Society equine/livestock adoption application and email it to: animalcontrolmgr@whatcomhumane.org. You may also fax your application to (360)733-4746 or drop it off at our Division Street shelter.

Equine/Livestock applications are available on our website at http://whatcomhumane.org/applications/. Please note on your application which horse(s) you are interested in.

Your application will be reviewed and a member of the WHS staff will contact you with additional information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Willow, a Bellingham Quarterhorse was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Quarterhorse for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Quarterhorse 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 Quarterhorse breeders who help with Quarterhorse rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
