Terry, our Operations Director and Jane, a long time SAFE volunteer, headed across the waters on a ferry ride to Kingston. They picked up two new horses this week, Lucca, a 19 year old bay Arabian mare and her friend, Aries, an 18 year old red roan Arabian. Both are very sweet and well behaved.
Sadly, their owner had to rehome them when they had to sell their home due to the husband’s cancer diagnosis. They were unable to find them a good home when they were dealing with so much themselves. Fortunately, SAFE had room, and was happy to step in and help. Both mares have been on trail rides and Aries was their daughter’s 4H horse. They both are healthy and just need a little TLC to prepare for riding again, since it’s been about a year since they’ve been under saddle.
Both seemed relaxed when they arrived. Lucca kept yawning in the sunshine while Aries stood calmly next to her. Neither one broke a sweat on the long journey across a ferry to their new home. We are excited to get to know these sweet mares and prepare them for their next chapter in life.
