Dahlia - 16 yrs.

$300 - Dahlia is a 16 year old OTTB mare. She is 16 hands tall, well broke and is sound and healthy. She could use a few extra pounds, but that will come soon. Dahlia had a short racing career then was passed around a bit as a brood mare. While we do not have a ton of info on her distant past, the past year and 1/2 or so, she has been used exclusively as a trail horse. She is a reliable horse out on the trails and has never bucked, bolted, kicked or reared. She is current on all her shots, trims, de-worming and had her teeth floated in the fall. This mare will be the perfect horse for someone with a little experience who wants to get out on the trails ASAP on a safe, sane horse. Dahlia direct reins only, so if you want to neck rein, you will have to teach her that.

Dahlia is not sound and we will need more time and investigation into the cause, possible treatment and if she can be a riding horse or not.
Such a beautiful black mare. I hope she can become sound again. Sending positive thoughts her way.

Update: 5-7-2017

While Dahlia still has a little weight to put on, she has gained quite a bit and is looking better and better every day. She has all her shot and a fresh Coggins. We can now make her available for adoption. We want to see Dahlia go to a home where they will use her for light trail riding, which is what she is beat suited to. It appears that she has very light arthritis in her hip, so we do not want to see her as a lesson horse, barrels or jumping, but moves very well and will make someone a fine trail horse.

I wish her home was with us.  She has a sweet face.
Dahlia continues to do well and is consistently slowly gaining weight.  When she came in she had a very long and thick winter coat, and she is shedding out very nicely but still has a little hair to get rid of yet.  She is shining up nicely!  Dahlia has settled in really well and is a pleasure to be around.  Here are a couple of updated pictures of Dahlia from yesterday, 5/14/2017.
