Chloe is one of over 50 horses rescued during late September into October 2019 to keep them out of the slaughter pipeline. Chloe appears to be a young mustang who was stand-offish at first, but has slowly become more curious and friendly after settling in. She doesn’t seem to have a lot of training including not being halter/lead trained. Until she is out of quarantine, training evaluation cannot begin. Chloe was very lame upon arrival but seems to have improved. She appears to be club-footed and it’s unclear if a lack of farrier care or her conformation are causes for lameness. We hope to begin a more in-depth assessment during November and December 2019.
Chloe finished her quarantine period and went with a few of the other horses to receive veterinary care. While she is an unhandled mustang, she is very smart and watched her friends load into the roomy 6-horse trailer. She hopped right in and, even though she then seemed startled, she rode very well with her buddies. She has a current Coggins but has to learn basic gentling and handling skills before her hooves can be worked on and before any dental exam, treatment. Chloe’s curious nature makes her a delight to work with. She is currently with Cookie at a training facility and settling into her new routine very well.
Chloe is excelling in her training program. She has learned to be haltered, led, load into a trailer, pick up hooves for farrier care, being groomed, sprayed from a bottle (for summer fly spraying), de-spooking to various objects, wearing tack and beginnings of under saddle riding. You can follow her progress on Facebook here.
