AAE welcomed June, a beautiful young mare, from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary on Feb 28, 2018. AAE is working with DC in a continued effort to support DreamCatcher's herd reduction efforts after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016.
June spent some time at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center (MRILC) for gentling and basic handling. She was halterable, but needed some time building trust and confidence. While at AAE she progressed nicely with basic handling and hoof care. Not long after arrival, little June's belly suddenly ballooned, and she delivered her colt, Johnny, on April 20, 2018. She had some down time to settle in at AAE and enjoy her lil' guy. June is a sweet, gentle mare that is on the lower end of the hierarchy in a group and herd environment. She is soft and kind, while a little aloof.
June is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care, Her hooves are still a work in progress, but she did well with the farrier for her first trim. June has low fetlocks and should not be considered for more than a light riding prospect, at best.
Adoption fee subject to change based on training. Please refer to website for current information.
UPDATE: June has been ground driven several times, and has had 3 rides at the walk. She would make a great leadline horse with more training or could make a fun cart pony. ...Read full description
