Dove is a sweet Quarter Horse mare around 18 years old who arrived in late March from an owner surrender that was prompted by Animal Control. She earned her name by being extremely peaceful and understanding, helping us to catch other scared horses on the property who were not so accustomed to handling. Dove was living on rough land with many other horses while she was underweight and blind. With a little time and care she now looks much better and is really a sweetheart. Dove is said to be a full blooded Quarter Horse from Zippos Pine Bar bloodlines but we were not provided any paperwork or registered name. She appears to be 100% blind because both eyes are very recessed and were damaged but appear to be "settled" and not inflamed or causing any pain. Dove will lead anywhere and is very smart about changing surfaces, stepping over a threshold and loading in a trailer when needed. She is up to date on vaccinations, deworming, Coggins and dental care. She would make a fantastic companion to another horse or would likely enjoy being someone's pet to brush and love for the rest of her days. She could possibly be useful for unmounted therapy work but there's really no health reason that she couldn't thrive in continued training with the right person. She is happy, well adjusted, and has a great sense for sound as it relates to objects in her environment, so she does NOT seem to have any issues with bumping into fences, walls, etc. She has done well when loose indoors, stalled, or turned out in a new pasture with trees or with a run-in. Dove does need some time and patience with the farrier, we don't believe she received regular trims in a very long time, if ever, before coming to KHS and has good hoof quality (not lame at all) but just needs a little more time and patience to work on this incrementally. If you think you may be interested and able to provide a wonderful adoptive home for Dove, please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions today.
