|Story:||Star was rescued in an emaciated condition from a thoroughbred breeding stud with a colt foal at foot. Her foal was old enough to be weaned and was purchased from the stud by one of our volunteers. |
The stud had come upon some serious financial strife and was attempting to sell all of the horses in a hurry. Star was purchased for $100. She won $73,000 in prize money when she was racing and then was used as a brood mare for 12 seasons, producing 6 live foals.
Star is a super sweet mare. She loves affection and is a pleasure to do anything with.
She is a wind sucker but this is controlled by a collar and she is hard fed twice a day to maintain condition. She hasn't been ridden since she was racing and as such is not suitable for riding.
Star found her forever family with her foster carer.
