Takela and her 2-month-old colt (Carson) came to AAE in June 2009 from a Nevada feedlot. Both were underweight and in poor health. Takela’s hooves were extremely long with vertical splitting. One front toe had chipped and folded under her hoof. She initially was distrusting of humans and difficult to approach, touch, or handle. Today, she is living in a foster boarding facility and is being trained under saddle and ridden regularly! Takela was started in September 2011, and her foster reports that she is doing well in her training. Takela walks/trots nicely for several laps at a time in the arena, and she recently has begun loping. She handles ropes and tarps with ease, and ties well. Takela has been trailered out to trails and goes in the river. She is turning out to be a solid trail horse. She is ready for a forever home that will take her training to the next level. Because she is still green, she requires an experienced and confident (but patient and gentle) rider. With her golden good looks, Takela is sure to get noticed in whichever direction she is taken, whether it be on trail, in shows, or simply as a pleasure horse.
