PROJECT HORSES ARE LONG TERM COMMITMENTS REQUIRING EXPERIENCED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE HOMES. Boudica is an honest and genuine mare who has probably been feral for most of the 8 years of her life and running wild with a herd. With no previous handling she is nervous of people and does not trust easily. Since arriving at Hall Farm Boudica has received extensive handling and, although she has made considerable progress, she still has a long way to go. This is not surprising considering she is being asked to go against all her natural instincts and her life experiences so far. When faced with anything unusual Boudica quickly reverts back to her feral default mode so it is vital she receives regular and consistent handling. Despite this Boudica has a willing nature and she will try hard for you when you gain her trust. Although not for the feint hearted, Boudica will be an incredibly worthwhile project for a sympathetic but firm handler who has the experience, commitment and time available to take her on. In the right home with encouragement to help her overcome her insecurities, this lovely young mare would certainly come good.
Boudica is an honest, genuine mare who just needs time and patience to build her confidence and deal with her insecurities. She will probably blossom in a one to one situation, but after 8 years of running wild she is not going to turn around overnight.
Boudica arrived at Hall Farm in December 2015 as part of a large welfare concern. Over 50 horses were running wild on 140 acres. They were mostly unhandled and breeding indiscriminately.
