Buttercup :: Adopted!
Buttercup is a Palomino mare born in 2008.
She was bound for slaughter when we stepped up and bought her. But now she has now been declared healthy by a vet.
She is a gorgeous horse. Wish she would come around a bit more.
You can tell she wants to trust people. She just cannot commit.
She is skiddish, wary of humans, but not dangerous. She can be caught, and walks well on a halter.
Buttercup when she first arrived at the rescue.
We don't know much about what possible training she's had, but we are working with her to show her humans can be kind.
This mare gave birth three weeks after this picture. The foal was barely holding his own, it took some work to save him. Cute little guy, his name is Harley.
The foal has been weaned and Buttercup is ready for adoption. She is a beautiful horse, just waiting for someone to show her the way.
