From the Hooved Animal Rescue of Thurston County –
“Cindy is an elder grey Arabian mare who was impounded in November of 2012. She might make a nice quiet child mount.”
Update July 16 – Her foster home writes:
“She’s a great little horse, mid to late 20’s flea bitten gray Arab Mare. She was put under refresher training with a trainer and hasn’t forgotten anything.
She trailers, walks through water, is not afraid of blue tarps, she stands for the farrier, and lunges well except she has no intention of getting up any speed in the lunging.
She just last week had her teeth floated, her feet have been done, she has received her immunizations and worming, all in the past month.
As for riding, she rides very, very well but prefers to be a follower rather than a leader. She gets a little nervous either in the trailer or when being tied but calms rather easily.
She’s missing a number of teeth so you have to wet her food down so it’s pasty and she can move it back to the back of her mouth easier. She does eat hay but prefers the smaller pieces, and she likes to graze because she has great front teeth and can pull it easier.
She gets along fine with the other horses a mare and a gelding, she lives right next to some cows and she has no fear of the dog, the cat or the goat.
You don’t have to be an expert to ride her but until she gets a little more riding regularly I think she would do better with a confident rider rather than an inexperienced one.”
