(Update: Agatha has been adopted!) Agatha is a 13.3hh bay mare who came in during a May 2016 Mahnomen County abandonment/neglect case. She is approximately 16-17 years old. Agatha and the other horses from this case had been running free for quite a while and had gotten used to avoiding handling–so they were all a bit pushy and headstrong. However, she’s a nice horse who has obviously had some handling in the past and she has now learned some very good ground manners. Agatha was covered in burdock at intake and also had one of the worst tick infestations we have ever seen. She also had extremely sore and swollen eyes. Upon examination the vet discovered she required bilateral entropian surgery (eyelids flip inwards, causing lashes to rub on corneas). She had the surgery and has recovered nicely. She is a much happier, calmer girl now that she is no longer in constant discomfort! Agatha only stands around 13.3hh but she is a big bodied mare. She has very solid legs and feathering–so possibly has some draft horse in her. You can tell by the way she moves that she probably has some Arabian in her as well. She is up to date on all vaccinations, coggins, deworming, and farrier care. Agatha really loves to be in the barn and is a very quiet and tidy mare in her stall–but she does best with a hay bag.
