_____Emma History:_____
String of Diamonds, or Emma, is an ex-racehorse, who after retiring from the track went on to a career as a Jumper and 4th level Dressage. She is a very well trained, well traveled horse that had a good show career. Emma has soundness issues, and does come up lame. A combination of being started way too young for her racing career, and injuries during her showing career have taken their toll on her legs/joints. Emma's previous owners brought her to the Sanctuary because they were having difficulties keeping her sound.

_____Emma Current:_____
During Emma's time with us, she has blossomed so much. She has learned how to socialize with horses, and now loves being part of a herd. Emma is a mare through and through. She is definitely high in the herd hierarchy, and demands respect.
Though Emma was born in 1990, she doesn't behave like an older mare. She is still very fit and active. Emma's youthful zest-for-life coupled with her years of experience truly make her a special girl.
Emma, like many Thoroughbreds, is definitely a hard-keeper. It takes a lot of groceries to keep her in ideal weight. She is on a senior feed, which we have found suits her quite well. She is also on a joint supplement. Once Emma became part of the herd, she finally started grazing, this has helped her stay in good weight.
Emma is truly a gorgeous horse. We constantly get comments on how pretty she is. While beauty is never a bad thing, it has attracted people with an interest in adopting Emma as a brood mare. We, being a horse rescue, strongly disagree with the amount of horses being bred annually. Part of our Adoption Policies state that any animal acquired through the Sanctuary can not be bred.
Emma enjoys being groomed, is great with the hose, stands perfectly for her feet and cross-ties like a dream. Having traveled for shows, trailering is not an issue.
Emma has been kept current/up-to-date on all medical/farrier/dental needs.

_____Emma Future:_____
Emma is looking for a home that will not only understand her physical limitations, but will respect them. Emma is still able to do light riding when sound, since she is such a joy to ride, we will be careful not to place her somewhere will she will be over-used. Since Emma eats so much, and needs joint supplements, she is looking for someone who can afford to maintain her properly. Emma's training level, and the fact that she is a Thoroughbred mare, means she needs a more experienced owner/rider. Like any horse, Emma needs at least one other horse in her new home.
We are certain that there is a caring person out there that will open up their heart to this beautiful mare.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Emma, a Marengo Thoroughbred was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Thoroughbred for sale in Marengo, or seeking a Thoroughbred from a breeder in Marengo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marengo 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 Marengo 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 Thoroughbred breeders who help with Thoroughbred rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marengo paves the way for another one to be saved.
