Four Adorable Adoptables
It is with a heavy heart that I place this advertisement to try and find a new home for my horses and donkeys. Our family’s financial situation has changed, my husband is not in good health, we are trying to run a small business and be good parents to three small children. My furry children are simply not getting the love and attention that they should be, and though it makes me heart sick, I really need to do what is best for them. I have two Paso Fino mares and two miniature Mediterranean donkeys, a jenny and a gelded jack. The mares are Nina, born 2001, gray, and Marisol, born 2005, bay. The donkeys are Daphne, born 1998, dun, and Duncan, born 2010, chocolate. These four are used to being together, they know their routine, and are very low maintenance. No one is registered – these animals are pets, and boy howdy, do they ever know it. They are all very gentle and used to being handled and loved on, petted and groomed. They are all extremely easy keepers - don't feed them a lot of grain (I feed Wellness Calm and Cool) and don't allow access to lush spring grass - they gain weight and / or get sick from it. They are VERY low maintenance. Use a grazing halter in the spring if you have to leave them on spring grass. I haven't ridden in a long time - was busy having kids – but I used to ride Nina prior to my three pregnancies. Marisol would also likely be rideable if someone would take the time with her. She completely trusts people and is very gentle. Ideally, I am hoping someone will take the four of them and keep them together, but am willing to consider splitting them up if that’s what turns out to be best for everyone. The adoption fee for each animal is $300, but if someone were willing to take the four of them as a group, that fee would be very negotiable. They are all current on hoof trims, vaccines, and worming. I'm having a Coggins pulled on all next week. Note I checked "kid safe" below - but common sense says you need to introduce the kids to the horses / donkeys slowly and with adult supervision. Better safe than sorry. I have three small kids, and the horses and donkeys have always been very gentle with them. Just use common sense and remember the old saying "any dog can bite and any horse can kick" and be sure your kids know the basics of horse handling safety.
