This kind, sensitive lady would make the perfect non ridden equine friend as she lives happily in a herd and could potentially stay on her own or be stabled for short periods if another horse was ridden out. Lavender was in foal when she came to us as a welfare concern and the foal was born very soon after her arrival. Although Lavender was quite wary to start with, she has had lots of regular, quiet handling and over time has built up her confidence with people. Every day tasks do not faze her but getting to know and trust new people may take time. The ideal home for Lavender would be a quiet yard where she could live out as much as possible and build a bond with her handler. Lavender has a sensitivity to sunlight so will need to wear a fly rug and mask during the summer months when turned out and will also need to have her grazing restricted to prevent laminitis and obesity.
She is a very gentle little mare, but is sensitive to new people and surroundings.
Lavender was brought to Glenda Spooner Farm as a welfare concern. She was very emaciated and heavily in foal.
