The lovely Angel has been with Forever Friends since 8 March 2020. She was surrendered to the pound by the previous owner.
Angel is approx. 13 hands high and is aged between 15 and 20 years. We have not had Angel under saddle since receiving her into our care. We’ve had notes that she was a broodmare for most of her life and was broken it at some time.
We’re unsure if some of Angel’s anxious responses are due to mistreatment in the past or lack of handling. She will require an owner with patience and experience to help her reach her full potential.
We found catching Angel is a round pen to be the most effective way to handle her to date. Again, patience and persistence are the keys.
During her farrier appointments, we found Angel to be cooperative with her front feet and reluctant with her back feet. We found that by giving her a light sedation, it helped both her and the farrier to trim her back feet with a minimum of distress. She displays nervousness with handling her back legs and feet.
Angel has her health checks up to date. Her teeth were checked, and she received vaccinations and worming in March 2021 – Her feet were done in April 2020 after arriving with us.
Angel has Cushings Syndrome and so will require a paddock with minimal grass so that her feet don’t get overgrown and sore. She might be helpful in ‘mowing’ small sections of grass in the garden from time to time.
