This is Claire

İmage

She belongs to a neighbor who has no pasture so asked if we would keep her here. Claire is for sale and will be sold by the lb. in Sept if there are no offers. She's BIG (1500 lbs or more) and 17.1 hands high. And we were lied to about how old she is and how much has been done with her. I was told 5 yrs and driven in harness, she's 10 yrs and has never been bridled. So my goal is to make her a rideable horse so she isn't made into dog food. She tossed me only once. Wish us luck pope.gif

rofl.gif $20k is a lot to spend on a pasture ornament which is what it would end up costing until she dies. No, she needs purpose and attention and I'm going to see she gets the chance.

I hope you can achieve your goals with Claire and if you can why not contact an equestrian charity, such as an equestrian association for the disabled, and see if they can afford to buy her, or fund raise the money, or try to get the sale price down considerably? $20K seems like an unreasonable price to me.

Why not give online crowd fund raising a try?

Not $20k, that's just what it would cost to keep her for 20 years. They're asking $700 for her which is what she would bring at auction. We did get her bridled, took a while and a wee bit of patience, but once she got it, it was easy. She has a really sweet disposition, just never handled, doesn't understand. Once she's been ridden a few times she'll be worth $1500 or so. One more session with my friend (a pro trainer) and I'll be taking her on trails.

I am sure an association that provides horse riding exercise for disabled people could come up with $700 and they have the continuing fundraising to keep her healthy and happy...what do you think?
