Advert Description

Beautiful Project Mare for sale
£300 ONO
Appaloosa Cross
14.1/2hh 10yr
Selling on behalf of a friend, honest advert.
Lottie is a lovely mare, that once bonded with you, is extremely affectionate and enjoys a pamper session. She will happily groom you for hours, whilst you groom her.
She’s up for sale as her owner just does not have the time and consistency that Lottie needs. She had a foal that’s now a 2 year old and hasn’t done anything since.
She is stiff on the right rein, and struggles to bend correctly, she was originally broken to cart in Ireland, and was used as a happy hack since being here.
After nearly 4 years off, she’s going to need taking right back to basics, I believe she needs re breaking from the start to teach her how to use herself again.
She needs access to a stable, as in summer can suffer from photosynthesisation, studies have shown alfafa will not agree with them, so we always avoid this, and feeds that have it in. It seems to be worse if she’s in a field with pink peril. If she’s just in a grass paddock, she doesn’t seem effected. The signs are easy to spot though so if she starts with any symptoms we move her.
The type of owner Lottie needs:
Structure, and a routine. So that she knows what she’s doing, when she’s doing it. Or she can become a little highly strung and mareish.
Calm and quiet.
Soft hands / bitless.
Confident
Time and patience.
The home that Lottie goes to is much more important than the money. She won’t just go anywhere. Homes will be vetted and we will have her back if the home does not suit. Please no day dreamers, Lottie is NOT a novice ride and needs someone experienced. I would love to re break her before re homing her so that you could see her potential, but I just don’t have the time. This is the best decision for her.
Please get in touch if you want to know anything about her. I have a quick video of her lunging from last night if you want to see her move.
