ADOPTED!! by Diana and Adam
Abby was a sweet Quarter Horse type mare in her mid 30s whose owner sadly passed away in a car accident. Pierce County Animal Control took her in when no other family members came to claim her. We originally thought this Quarter Horse type mare was in her 20s, but a dental appointment with our vet last week let us know she is most likely in her mid 30s.
Pearl and Abby are adopted together! We found them a loving family with Diana and Adam. The two get to live out their days as best friends with two humans who adore them. Their gorgeous property is up north in Everson Washington. When Kaya, our Barn and Facilities Manager, dropped the two off, she was so excited to see their beautiful home in person. She jokingly told Diana we would be bringing another trailer of horses soon.
It is a bittersweet experience when our horses are adopted. We are ALWAYS very excited to see them head off into their new life, but we miss them! Which means we are very excited when adopters send us updates and photos and we hit the jackpot with updates on these two! Diana loves these mares so much, her Instagram is full of videos and photos of the two enjoying breakfast, or waiting for it, taking in the views, and just being stinking cute. The staff looks forward to seeing weekly, and sometimes daily, updates on these mares because we see the love they are surrounded with each day with Diana and Adam.
On a rainy Friday in June, our newest addition to the herd, Abby, arrived at SAFE. Abby is a sweet, easy going mare with wispy mane and kind eyes. Sadly, her owner passed away in a car accident and Pierce County Animal Control took her in when no other family members came to claim her. We originally thought this Quarter Horse type mare was in her 20s, but a dental appointment with our vet last week let us know she is most likely in her mid 30s. The staff is working to figure out the best diet to meet her needs. We have added alfalfa to help her digestion and are letting her free feed to get her up to weight.
Polite and patient, Abby stands nicely for treating her left front hoof for thrush and when the staff needs to give her a bath. Abby’s neighbor, Ari, a BLM Mustang arrived not even a week later. Ari has never been touched or handled by people before, so we are happy that Abby’s presence can give her comfort. We are excited to get to know our dear Abby and we’re pretty confident that we can find her a great home where she can live out her days being pampered and adored.
