Duchess' Story...

UPDATE: We believe we have finally figured out who this sweet little mare is. Her letter was a bit smudged, and after numerous attempts at better pictures, we know who she is. Meet Ojos de Oro (Golden Eyes), Florida bred, we now know she was foaled in 2003.  She is healing and gaining weight, a lovely lady, with a good head. She will need shoes, as she is currently barefoot and a bit tender-footed. See below for more info.

Additional Comments

Duchess**Chestnut OTTB Mare,  15.2hh, Adv. Beginner, $1200.00 includes her quarantine. . This pretty  little mare is currently a mystery, she has a tattoo, we think she is  European bred and have someone researching her, but her exact information, pedigree & age is unknown  at the moment. We believe she is upper teens to 20 years old, but her energy and spirit dont relfect that. She is a sweet thing, rescued from the killpen in  Asheboro NC. She has an old set bow, but rides sound. Meet&greets  & pre-purchase exams are welcome, as we strive for a good match  & "Right Fit". Adoption application, references, and contract  required.
