Bay TB or Standardbred type mare. Appx.
14.3 hands. Star. Appx. 6 years old. This is a very cute mare
who looks like a much younger horse. She is thin.
mare with a long flowing tail. She came right up to me. She
rides good, but does not know a lot. Would require a
patient, experienced rider willing to teach her and love her.
from the feedlot to TIER where she will be up for adoption shortly.
She will be seen by a vet, farrier, wormed and vaccinated. She
will also be evaluated as to her ridability and previous training.
This wonderful savior of Ella is also sponsoring her! Thank
you so much A!!!
4/13/01 - Annie went to her new home with adopter Chris
today! We are excited for Annie & Chris and look forward
to updates and stories.
didn't go to her new home alone! TIER will not adopt out a horse
to a home that does not have another horse, or to at least be
able to touch noses over a fence with another horse. Horses
are herd animals and should not be isolated from one another.
Therefore, Chris is also fostering Ella! Ella is a sensitive
young lady and shy. She will benefit from having her own foster
mom lavish attention on her and we are quite happy for both
Chris and Ella. Ella is available for adoption/sponsorship.
4/15/02 - Ella came home with me 2 months ago and has settled
in very well. She LOVES her new gelding friend Max. I'm not
sure the feeling is mutual. She nickers to me each time she
sees me....could it be she thinks I'm coming with hay or a special
treat, and it's not ME she's excited to see? She has stopped
walking away from me when I go in her corral with a halter.
I think she's actually starting to enjoy the attention. I've
been spending a lot of time with her in the round pen and arena
and she is so willing and eager to learn. Due to "whatever"
background she came from I've been taking it very slow with
her and it's so exciting when she shows such positive progress.
I will be sending pictures soon.
11/5/02 - Ella, a beautiful Standardbred mare that had been
adopted was returned to TIER as her adoptor felt "She deserves
more love and attention than I can give her. I felt very sad....she
is so sweet and really trusted me and I felt like I betrayed
the adoptor did not betray Ella. The adoptor was honest with
herself and honest with Ella.
is currently being fostered at Rancho Del Rio Stables (Anaheim
Equestrian Center) where she is getting lots of attention, hugs
and treats. Ella is such a sweet girl.
12/27/02 - I discovered today & yesterday that she doesn't
like apples, at least the red ones. She took one bite out of
the apple I offered to her tonight. Then she wouldn't even look
at it afterward. I should have brought her a carrot instead.
We took some photos of Ella and I on the day that I rode her.
I have attached two of them. They are cute. Ella is a very photogenic
- 1/03/2003 - Ella and Jann are a team! Jann fell in love
with Ella's sensitive nature and her willingness! Ella needed
her very own person to dote on her, understand her sensitivity
and someone who would be patient. She had found that and much
more with her new mom Jann. Congratulations to you both!
1/17/03 - I have definitely fallen in love with this girl.
We seem to speak the same language. We just have to work on
coordinating our dialects. She is bonding with me! My heart
melts every time she asks to be scratched. and it melts when
she wants to be comforted. She asks these things in such a delicate
and shy way, that if you aren't attuned to her you would miss
it. She is so lovely, in body, in spirit, and in intelligence.
At the end of each visit, I have to pull myself away. I could
spend years just stroking my hand along her silky neck. See,
even more gushy stuff. :)
have attached a photo. I took it at night so it is a little
dark, but it shows how beautiful she is physically. I am hoping
that I will be able to illustrate her beauty of spirit in a
photo one day. This photo was taken on Christmas day. So, this
is fairly early in our relationship. Now, she seems to be more
