September 13, 2023: Dallas continues to do well in foster care. She has some arthritis -- not unusual for a gal her age but is still good for light riding. In fact, she'll be more mobile if she can find a home where she'll get more light riding. Just like us humans, keeping those joints mobile, well, keeps those joint mobile.
December 30, 2022 Dallas is now an adoptable horse! She has gained at least 60 pounds, has her old personality back, has been fully checked out by our vet, had her dental and also a proper pedicure. Just today, she is back under saddle and ready to find her new home! She is doing so great! This golden girl has plenty of giddyup in her. She's a little rusty with her riding manners, likely due to not being ridden in awhile. But she's picking it back up quickly and is well-suited to light trail riding and arena work. But because she needs some guidance as she gets reacquainted with the riding game, she's probably best suited to an experienced rider.
Dallas is back with us as of September 2022.
September 2022: Dallas came back to us. She is an appendix, (Thoroughbred-Quarter Horse cross) mare, approximately 26 years old and stands at 14.3 hands. When she came to SAIN back in December of 2011, she had a body condition score of 2.5/9, as well as a few old abscesses and a puncture on her hoof. After she regained her health, Dallas was adopted out.
Unfortunately, her adopter is no longer able to care for her so she is back with us. We are told she was last ridden in June and that she was a good trail horse, and is still sound, though they've had difficulty maintaining her weight, of late. We are making arrangements to have Dallas checked out by a vet for full evaluation as soon as possible. Until we know more, she'll remain in Rehab/Assessment.
