Tilly was seized by authorities due to her extremely poor condition. After taking possession of this mare, SAFE sent her straight to NWESC for care as the starvation and neglect she had experienced put her at risk of serious illness or death. She arrived severely underweight, covered in rainrot, infested with lice, and loaded with parasites. It took two months before Tilly was strong enough to have her teeth floated. Once she recovered from her neglect, we discovered that she was a very good horse under saddle — solid at walk, trot, and canter; nicely forward with good transitions and a good whoa. Not only that but she was very sweet and easy to handle on the ground. We were eventually contacted by a previous owner of Tilly who recognized her from her photos. Tilly is a registered APHA mare named Ima Black Jag, by Ima Black Jaguar, out of Skips Wrangalet by Wrangler. She’s registered as a black tobiano, although she’s actually brown & white. She had extensive training and had been used as a children’s lesson horse. Tilly found a home for life with a local family who were looking for a horse that all of them could enjoy. Daughter Anna is very active in 4‐H with Tilly (along with her good friends who own SAFE alumni Aiden and Mom enjoys trail riding with Tilly too!
