Description

Farrah was donated to GSH due to injury and illness in their breeder's family.  She is a large, halter-bred Quarter Horse/Paint.   She is halter broke but is a little tough to catch. Farrah is very well bred, are young and sane, and beautiful - they will shine at local shows if someone puts the training into them.  She is not registered but can be, and the breeder will work with us to help get her registered.  Farrah suffered an injury to her left hind that has scarred and is noticable, however she does not show any lameness.  We have not done much with her training, as she also had a large crack in her hoof on intake and had to be aggressively trimmed which did cause soreness for a couple of weeks.  Now that she's grown out and doing better, she is ready to start her training.

***Farrah suffered from a tendon sheath injury as well as a cut on her left hind leg. She is currently on stall rest at Cedar Ridge Equestrian Center. She is expected to make a full recovery with proper care.

UPDATE APRIL 2015 - Farrah has completely recovered from her tendon sheath injury and shows no signs of lameness.  We've continued to work on her hoof cracks as they grew out over winter, and are well on our way to healthy hooves.  She is currently working on gaining back weight lost while injured and will start round pen work and saddle training this spring.  Polly, who came in with her, is adopted and in training and impressing people with her level headedness and willingness every day.  Farrah is a bit more playful, but just as smart and sane, so should be a very nice riding horse.
