Morgan is a lovely mare, well behaved on the ground and stands for grooming, bathing and the farrier. Morgan is very quiet and willing under saddle, and would make a nice trail horse for a smaller-sized rider who is conscientious about guiding her due to her left eye blindness. Said SFSPCA founder and director of rescue operations, “She is very quiet under saddle. She prefers to walk or trot. She will make a good trail horse for an intermediate rider. She is blind in her left side. She came in that way so we don’t know how it happened. I recently rode her near the street and she was not bothered by traffic or by the cow in the field.”
RESCUE STORY: Morgan and her foal Flirt owe their lives to an anonymous citizen who called us to report them and three other horses abandoned in a remote, vacant field with no food or water in the infamous 8.5/East Everglades on Thursday, May 18, 2017. Had they been left there much longer, they definitely would not have lived. Morgan was in by far the worst shape of the group, down to skin and bone, scoring only a 1 on the Henneke body scoring scale, and was producing very little milk. This strong and resilient mare amazed us with how quickly she, as a nursing mother, recovered.
