Louise was one of two mares we rescued in the Spring of 2015. The mares (Thelma and Louise) had been abandoned and were found wandering in the road in the middle of the night. Like Thelma, Louise had chronic sweet itch, sores, matted and clumped hair and looked very bedraggled. With lots of TLC she has now returned to full health and is now settled in the herd with the family grouping and the colts who have all welcomed her in.

Louise is a quiet horse that could easily be overlooked as the others around her have, on the surface, much stronger characters; but actually once she has the chance to shine, she is proving to be quite inquisitive and eager to learn.  Over the weeks that our Equine Behaviourist has been working with her, she has quickly understood instruction, is willing to undertake new activities and learn different skills – all with the most gentle of manner.  She has been taken out of the tracks on her own and walked around the site including round the pond, investigating new surroundings, surfaces and sights and she has done really well and it’s clear to see her confidence growing which makes us so proud of her! 

We have lots planned for Louise and the lessons that we are teaching her now are all steps towards reaching the potential that we believe that she has – and she seems to be telling us that she is well and truly up for taking on this new role!
