Ears on Backwards


Quarter Horse

Ears on Backwards (aka - "Ears") is a 2003, 15h Quarter Horse mare seeking a home as a companion or lead line horse for a small child rider. Ears has been used over the years primarily for trails with kids, husbands and more beginner riders. Her owner attempted barrel racing, but Ears hit the brakes and said "nope" to that idea, so she stuck primarily to trails. Due to her owner having difficulty keeping up with the care of her horses and farm, both physically and financially, Ears is in urgent need of a new, loving home.

Ears is a sweet girl who seems to love attention and would be suitable for an advanced beginner handler. She ties, stands quietly for grooming, picks up all four hooves, sprays and bathes. She is good for the vet and farrier. Ears has been turned out with geldings and does very well, so she would be suitable for a mixed herd. Ears is an easy-keeper and it doesn't take much to maintain her full figure.

We did not get to witness Ears being ridden, so her ability to be ridden from both a behavioral and soundness aspect could not be determined. We were told by her owner that she is a more-whoa-than-go ride. If she doesn't understand, or just doesn't want to do something, she will stop in her tracks (which works particularly well on the beginner riders). If Ears can be ridden, it is recommended that it be very lightly and infrequently, with a small, lightweight rider. Easy, short trail rides at the walk or lead line pony rides with small kids would be ideal.

Ears has calcification at the front of both front pasterns that appear to be ringbone. She has been sore at times and does best with 24/7 turnout. As a result, a life as a companion for another horse should be the primary focus for Ears.

She will need updating on shots, Coggins, dental and farrier care, but is updated on deworming. If you feel you could give Ears a wonderful new home, let us know!
