Rescue Group: River Edge Farm Horse Rescue
Cheyenne is a black and white registered Spotted Saddle Horse. She came to the rescue with Reddy and their foal Rusty. The three were surrendered because thier owner could no longer afford to care for them. Cheyenne was extremely underweight, still nursing Rusty, already pregnant again, and blind in her right eye when she arrived at the rescue. Of the three horses, she was in the worst shape. Rusty needed to be weaned, and she needed nutrition.
After about a month at the rescue (and plenty of food) Cheyenne was beginning the path toward a healthy weight and Rusty was on his own, no longer nursing. Over the next several months, her weight continued to increase as the pregnancy progressed. By the time the new colt was born in May 2011, she was back at a healthy weight.
Through the months that she's been at the rescue, we've come to know her as a very sweet mare. She's a good mother, and a nice horse to have around. Cheyenne has been through a lot in her life. She's ready to find a quiet place to call home. Since she has been pregnant or nursing throughout her stay at the rescue, we have not been able to see if she has any riding abilities.
Cheyenne is marked as special needs because her colt must be adopted with her.
