Sane, sound, healthy Saddlebred mare. She is approximately 17 years old, a little over 16hh and chestnut. She is extremely friendly and easy to be around. I haven't found a single thing so far that spooks her. She is broke to ride and was obviously well broke at one time, but now she is rusty. I know that she hasn't been ridden for at least a year, but she is safe. When she doesn't remember what you are asking for she just plants her feet and doesn't move. She stands like a rock for mounting and tacking up. She is up to date on everything and very desperately needs a home of her own. History:
Axel is a calm, sweet, good natured and gentle mare. She loves people and very easy to handle. Pretty darn unspookable she is a nice dependable horse to have around. Axel is the same day to day no matter if she is ridden or not. She is a very smart alpha mare who takes excellent care of her herd - horses and people. She would be an excellent trail horse for a husband or advanced beginner rider after a tune up.
Due to a trailering accident Axel cannot be hauled in a straight load trailer (unless Aced); instead she must be hauled in a large slant load or a stock trailer.
Axel was originally rescued back in April 08 by another local rescue. Several times she was supposed to have been given to me, but it never happened. In July 08 I was told that she was adopted, but I started having nightmares about her. I tried to find out where she was, but was unsuccessful until I was at the November 08 auction with a friend and we happened to see Axel along with two other horses there. The original rescue was notified that three of their horses were at the sale and they came with a police report saying the horses were stolen, but the auction house would not return the horses and instead said they had to be re-purchased. I told everyone that since Axel was supposed to have been sent to me in the first place that I was just going to buy her now and keep things simple. All three horses were re-purchased and Axel now officially belongs to me. They ran her through the auction as a loose horse and herded her with sticks... but in reality Axel is very sweet. I was told that she doesn't load well, but I didn't see any problems yesterday although admittedly she was Aced.
*Board/feed costs are rarely posted, however most horses incur approximately $200/month in such costs.
