|Online Adoption Application|
Nashville 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. Nashville’s x-rays were clean apart from a slight clubfoot in her LF, but she is sound and should be fine with proper hoof care. The horses have all been trimmed by SAFE’s farrier Daphne Jones, and despite their badly overgrown hooves, we are confident that they will fully recover from their neglect. Nashville has had two foals in her lifetime and is the dam of Valor, also surrendered to SAFE.We are told that she has had 60-90 days of prior training, but we plan to put her through our training program as an unstarted horse to give her a good foundation. She is a pretty mare with a mild disposition, and will make someone a fine friend someday soon.
All SAFE horses are adopted with a no-breeding clause, no exceptions. Nashville will be offered for adoption as a riding horse or a companion horse only. Nashville’s adoption fee will be determined once she starts training and will be in the range of $1,500 – $2,500.
