Faith

Faith is a palomino stock-type mare who came to MHARF from a December 2017 case. She came in with her weanling age filly Xena and she was also in foal again. On May 3rd, 2018, she gave birth to a chestnut colt who appeared at first to be healthy. Within 2 hours of birth, it was obvious the colt was not doing as well as he should be, so a vet was called for an examination. Upon veterinary recommendation, mare and foal were taken to Stillwater Equine Veterinary Clinic where he received care for failure to thrive. After 48 hours of fluids, plasma, and antibiotics it was clear that he was not going to make it, so the choice was made to have him humanely euthanized. We gave Faith 8 weeks to recover from this and she is now doing really well. She is well broke to ride but is just a bit rusty and is suitable right now for an intermediate rider but does definitely have potential to be suitable for an advanced beginner with more work. She was foaled around 2006 and stands 15.2hh. Faith does tend to be a dominant mare with other horses.
