The end of 2015 was a very busy time for us as a few of our horses made their way to join new families. One that has been a LONG time coming is LOLA’s adoption! It has been quite the journey for this little mare. SAFE and our volunteers have been with her through many transitions. People would often ask the question: “Why hasn’t Lola found a home yet?” and we were just as baffled. All we can say is that she just needed time for the right person to find her, fall in love and discover what an amazing horse she is to ride. It has been a pleasure to watch this spunky girl blossom into a well-behaved, attractive and loving partner.
It was love at first sight for SAFE volunteer Maja and Lola. You could see their connection and how well they understood each other from that very first ride. It is always amazing to find someone who “gets it” and can listen to what the horse needs to become successful. Maja plans on doing some light arena work with Lola, a small jump here and there, and lots and lots of long trail rides.
Lola joins Maja’s other young mare, Saga, at their family home in Redmond. The two mares are now fast friends and wonderful companions. They have a beautiful property to stretch their legs and enjoy being horses. It is exactly the life Lola deserves!
The entire SAFE team already misses our little Lola, but we have a big smile in our hearts knowing she has found her HOME and is exactly where she was always meant to be, with a family to call her own. It will be exciting to see her at her alumni checks and hearing about all her wonderful adventures. We wish you the very best sweet mare and will always think of you fondly!
Here are just a few pictures of the people in Lola’s life at SAFE who have helped her in her transformation:
