Offered by All About Equine Animal Rescue
El Dorado Hills, CA
Rehoming Fee: $550.00 - Re-homing Agreement

AAE welcomed Bonnie from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary in August of 2019 to support their ongoing herd reduction efforts after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016. Bonnie is an older mare, and winters at DreamCatcher can be difficult. We were told Bonnie was placed in sanctuary at DreamCatcher after failing training attempts with five different trainers. She is not trained under saddle. Bonnie a sweet, social mare. She enjoys grooming and attention; however, she is very opinionated and can be a bit bull-headed. Bonnie has Cushings and a severe fly allergy. She gets a daily carrot pocket with her Cushings meds. A cooler climate would be ideal her. This summer (2020), she has been on antihistamines twice a day, and it has helped tremendously. We tried fly sheets and masks, but she destroys them. It's hard to keep her comfortable (she's very itchy). Fly spray, war paint, swat, they all help, but she needs them applied regularly during fly season. Bonnie is all mare. She's dominant around food, and she's bossy in a herd. She usually connects well with one or two other horses. Her current buddy is Gunner. ​Bonnie is current with hoof and dental care, vaccines and deworming, and she has a microchip. Bonnie needs daily meds for Cushings, and daily antihistamines and extra effort with fly prevention during fly season. In general, there is a lot of activity around AAE including foot traffic in and out of paddock/pasture areas, mucking with wheelbarrows, grooming and care activities, weekly farrier visits. There are resident dogs, cats, chickens, and mini horses, as well as various wildlife including frequent turkeys and squirrels in and around paddock/pasture areas. AAE is situated on the corner of a busy road with high speed vehicles, trucks, and sirens. Tractors are used in and around pasture/paddock areas, trucks deliver feed, and a squeeze is occasionally used for unloading hay. Neighbors have weekly gardeners that utilize various power tools, and children that are active in yards adjacent to some stall/paddock areas. Horses at AAE are accustomed to a more active environment as opposed to a quiet/sterile environment.
