Cheval is full of potential. She is the daughter of a Percheron mare and a Thoroughbred stallion and it seems like she has inherited the best from both. She is going to be a very large mare, and yet she is very refined and athletic. She is dark gray now, but is shedding out to be a lighter gray. She is expected to mature to 17hh and have a heavy warmblood build. She is calm and not spooky, but she is playful and spirited. She respects people, has all of her beginning ground work done and is a nice and well mannered filly. She is easy to catch, lead, back, tie, groom, stands nicely for the farrier, etc. Perhaps her best quality is her mind. She is sweet, intelligent and a real thinker. She doesn't spook at hardly anything, but when she does, she thinks through it she doesn't just panic. Her only failing at this point is that while she is easy to catch, she doesn?t want to have her halter put on. With the other horses she is a paradox. She is the boss, the baby, and the clown. Most of the time, even though she is only 6 months old, she runs the herd.History:
Two Percheron mares and their foals were rescued from the Hermiston sale by a friend in October. The mothers were very bad off and the foals were still nursing. The white mare died within a day or two and then the black mare nursed both foals, she started to recover and gain weight but then coliced and died.
*Board/feed costs are rarely posted, however most horses incur approximately $200/month in such costs.
