Eleven is the larger of the two big black mares, virtually identical to her paddock-mate, Betty, though Eleven boasts a cute facial marking. Eleven arrived at SAFE quite overweight, and during our initial vet check we ran bloodwork on her. Her results came back positive for Cushing’s, and we immediately started her on daily medication.
Eleven is the more outgoing of the two big black mares, but she can still be a bit hesitant on occasion. Overall, she is a very gentle girl, a breeze to groom and blanket.
Eleven is nearly up to date on vet and farrier care. She has a dental float scheduled, where she will get a microchip and a teat cleaning. She is up to date on her vaccines. She was also dewormed upon arrival, as she arrived with a positive worm load. She is very sweet about being groomed and is good for picking up her feet, though she can be a bit heavy sometimes – she has been trimmed once since arriving at SAFE, with her next trim planned for next week, and a 6 week trim schedule set going forward. She gets daily thrush treatments to help combat the thrush all the Graham horses arrived with.
Eleven enjoys time out in the big arena with Betty, Hopper, and Addie, and winter sunbathes in her paddock.
