Amira

SEX: Mare BREED: Mustang REGISTERED NAME: none  
COLOR: Roan MARKINGS: freeze brand
   
YOB: 2005 AGE: 13 HEIGHT: 15.0 WEIGHT:
LOCATION: Redmond ADOPTION FEE: $1,000 Online Adoption Application  

Amira was surrendered to SAFE after her owner abandoned her and another horse on a property that could no longer house horses. Amira’s 27 year old companion was starved and had to be humanely euthanized. Amira fared better but she still shows signs of neglect. Her shaggy winter coat hides her weight loss. Her hooves are overgrown and full of nasty thrush. She hasn’t had a dental or any other vet care in years. However, we are told that she is a very well trained riding horse who has taken care of kids and beginner riders. Right now, she is in quarantine for her protection. Once she is stable, we look forward to finding out what this sweet girl can do. A freeze brand has revealed that Amira is a Mustang, born in 2005 and from the Warm Springs BLM area of Oregon. All SAFE horses are adopted with a no‐breeding clause, no exceptions.

Getting to Know Amira

Getting to Know Amira

Amira has been with us for 10 days now and so far, we really like this sweet, friendly mare! She’ll be quarantined for about another week, and then we can really start getting to know her. For right now, we mostly interact with her when her paddock is being cleaned, and she likes to follow the volunteers around when they’re there. We are still very hopeful that Amira is a kids horse as we were told. This weekend, she met a little girl and gently and carefully allowed herself to be led around by her. It was pretty adorable.

We are a little concerned about her RF foot…she seems to be resting it quite a lot. Could be she has an abcess brewing, causing her discomfort. We’ll have our vet take a look at it when he comes out to float her teeth.

We also couldn’t help but notice that Amira has a line of white fur just below her crest on the left side of her neck. Could this be a mustang brand? It’s hard to tell right now, with her scruffy starvation coat, but maybe we’ll be able to make it out better when she sheds out in the spring.

Here are some photos that Jessica Farren took of Amira shortly after her arrival at SAFE:
