We always hope that we have placed our horses in forever homes…but from time to time, things don’t work out that way. Nora was with her loving adoptive family for almost three years when we got the call that their life situation was changing and they could no longer keep their horses. Saddened to hear that she was again needing to find placement SAFE stepped in to help run ads to find her a new home. Unfortunately, her adoptive families house sold and Nora had to leave the property before a new placement was found. Worried that she may end up in a bad situation, SAFE offered to take her back.
When I went to the property to pick her up, Nora was still the same sweet mare. She had been living with another older companion horse and two minis. While she called to them as we pulled away, she was very quiet for the ride and when I unloaded her at Cedarbrook Veterinary Hospital, for her quarantine and health evaluation from Dr. Hannah, she was relaxed, quiet and well behaved. She wasn’t even sweaty from the trailer ride and settled right into her stall.
After a clean bill of health and a dental float, we moved Nora in with our super foster and adopter mom Susan. Nora was reunited with her old friend SAFE alumni Kat and introduced to SAFE horse Marta. Everyone got along right away and the three mares make a wonderful little herd on Susan’s 10 acre property in Duvall. All reports of Nora have been glowing. She is in good health and available as a companion for adoption.
Nora is suited for beginning handlers and does well in either a stall with day turnout or all day pasture living. She gets along best with mares and while she can be a bit bossy about food, she is easily managed. All the mares currently eat and live together 24/7 without trouble. Nora is an easy keeper and only requires regular hoof trims and annual dental floats. She is a genuine sweetheart and we hope that a nice family will find room in their hearts to make her part of their family.
