Belle and Aurora Join the Herd

SAFE welcomed two new horses to our herd today. Belle is a 19 year old Thoroughbred mare, and her daughter Aurora is 11 years old. The two girls are sharing a quarantine space at Safe Harbor for the time being, and seem very interested in all the goings on around them. We’ll give them time to acclimate and settle in before we start evaluating them to see what they know and what they need to learn. First impression is that they are nice girls who haven’t gotten a great deal of handling lately so they need to be reminded about paying attention to their handlers and respecting personal space. We’re pretty sure they’ll do well once training starts. They are both big-bodied, gorgeous mares with a lot of potential!
