Cookie came to the rescue after worried calls from her previous owner. The owners of the farm that she was staying at would no longer allow her to stay there. They told her owner that if she was not removed from the farm, Cookie’s life was in danger. After some scrambling, her owner found transportation, the rescue found space, and she is now safely at River’s Edge.
She has had 2 months prof training and will be a gentle horse after some experience. She is blind in her right eye and came that way. It does not look different and has never bothered her. She is easy to catch, loves attention and will be a great trail horse with some riding time. Knows the basics and is very sweet. Age is 5-6 . Her mother was an adopted BLM mustang that turned out to be pregnant. Cookie will need an experienced rider until she gets more miles and experience on trails. Adoption fee is $450 and her training cost twice that.
Cookie has an interesting story. Her mother was a mustang adopted directly from the BLM. A few months after the adoption, there was a second animal in the field with her mother. At first glance it looked like it might be a deer. A closer inspection showed that it was a foal! This means that Cookie is a full mustang — bred on the range — but she doesn’t have a brand because she was born in here in Tennessee. Unfortunately, Cookie’s mother was not very interested in having a foal, so Cookie was bottle fed by her previous owners.
So far, Cookie has been a friendly horse. She is a little pushy and needs some ground manners. She is healthy, but has some cloudiness in one eye, so she may not have full vision on that side. Cookie is ready for training. Please call if you would like to add her to your family.
