My name is Twiggy!
I am in need of an experienced adopter, rideable, up to date with shots, and good with kids.
Twiggy (formerly known as "Baldie") is a 2011 Nurse Mare orphan. You can read more about their story on their page. She came in with horrible urine burns and a fungal infection that had taken most of the hair on her face and some spots on her body as well. She was our youngest nurse mare foal and not one we'd planned on, but she clearly wasn't doing well and we couldn't leave her behind!
Twiggy's hair has grown in and she is a healthy and lovely young lady. She will be available for adoption in November 2011. As of this writing (July 2011), she is learning to be halter-broke and how to pick up her feet.
July 2014: Twiggy has been started undersaddle and is doing quite well. She is standing 15 hands at 3 years old. Twiggy has been ridden indoors and outdoors and crosses water like a champ!
Stay up to date on Twiggy's progress on her updates page.
Baldie is looking for an adopter as well as a sponsor at $100/mo to sustain her until she's old enough to go to her forever home! Baldie's adoption fee is $500.
