Mamacita Carmelita's Story...
Carmelita is a pretty little 20-something buckskin dun mare that arrived at All About Equine Animal Rescue on May 12, 2011. She was rescued off of a feedlot, and she was in an absolutely horrible condition. She was malnourished/emaciated; her hooves and teeth had clearly been neglected for a long time; the angles of her hoof walls weren’t supporting her weight properly, and she was standing on her soles since they extended beyond her hoof walls; her teeth were is very poor condition, so much so that it was difficult for her to eat; and her coat was dull, matted, and hair pulled out in thick clumps. She was certainly a sight for sore eyes.
Despite all of those physical issues, Carmelita is an incredibly sweet little mare. She’s mild mannered and has such a kind soul. It seems she'll make a nice little youth mount for light riding, leadline, or walk/trot. Carmelita stands about 14.2H.

Since her arrival at AAE, Carmelita’s health has improved significantly – she’s gained weight and filled out, becoming a nice, thick, stocky mare; her hooves have improved considerably; her teeth were power floated, but a few needed extraction; and her coat has a healthy sheen to it now. She would love so much to have a kind, loving forever family to adopt her and love her forever. Child friendly, she’d be good for almost anyone, provided she has only a light job. She’s truly a wonderful horse that anyone would be lucky to have.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mamacita Carmelita, a El Dorado Hills Quarterhorse was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Quarterhorse for sale in El Dorado Hills, or seeking a Quarterhorse from a breeder in El Dorado Hills.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in El Dorado Hills 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 El Dorado Hills 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 El Dorado Hills paves the way for another one to be saved.
