Success Stories – Adopted 2019
Misha is a 19 year old, unraced off the track thoroughbred mare. This lovely lady came to us as part of a legal case involving 10 horses in west Tennessee. Misha’s owner had horses in race training while older horses in her direct care were unfed and neglected. Misha was in the worst shape of all; a BCS 2. She had obviously a broodmare for a time.
Misha stands 16.2 hands and is available as a “light riding” horse. This means no performance events or strenuous trails. She has some muscle wasting in one hip (as seen in her full-body photo). Our vet feels this is a chronic condition, and she is not lame or sore. Despite this, she is a lovely mover. Misha rides quietly on a loose rein and does not seem to know or remember what contact means. She’s not barn or buddy sour or spooky about anything that her foster has found. It takes a good bit of leg to get her into a trot, though she will likely get softer the more she is legged back up.
Misha is the bottom of the pecking order in the herd and as such, she will need to be fed in a stall or separate enclosure. She is easy to catch and currently lives outside 24/7 with access to a run-in shed. She can be a bit oblivious to her handler, so someone who is comfortable with a taller horse on the ground is going to be a must. Misha is up to date on vaccines, Coggins, deworming and chiropractic care. She would love to find a person to adore her.
