Penelope’s Story

mare-rescue-horse-florida-story-penelope-1Penelope ~ Quarter Horse Mare

The picture to the left was taken on the day  Penelope arrived at the sanctuary.  Her previous owner had put a stallion in with her and several other mares in an effort to breed them.  Fortunately, she did not become pregnant.

Penelope is what I would consider a feral horse with human issues.  I don’t know what happened to her in her previous life, but whatever it was, it has left a lasting negative impression on her that we are trying to overcome on a daily basis.


This is penelope about 7 months after her arrival.

This is penelope now.
