Angel and her five herdmates were surrendered to SAFE by their owner, who was no longer physically or financially able to properly care for them. The horses were in decent weight but had not had farrier or dental care in some time. Because of Angel’s age, we took her in as a Hospice case, with the intention of providing her with a couple months of good care before letting her pass peacefully. However, she is quite the spirited old gal, and remarkably healthy and sound. Perhaps there is another chapter to her story yet to be written, and a new life as someone’s beloved pet and companion.

Angel seems very unaccustomed to being handled, and has a lot of fear. She was quite difficult to catch when first we met, and it took over 2 hours to catch her in the field the first time we tried. Now it takes about 5 minutes to convince her to let herself be caught, which is a definite improvement. There is some sort of abnormality with her left hind foot, but she seems to get around on it just fine. We were only able to trim her front hooves when our farrier was out, so Angel will need continued practice with having her feet handled so we can get her hinds taken care of.

All SAFE horses are adopted with a no-breeding clause, no exceptions. If we determine that she should be made available for adoption, Angel will be offered as a companion horse only.
