Molly is seven years old and available for adoption through Red Dog Farm. She is a rescue horse, but not due to any fault of her own. Her owners came to a tragic end and she was left homeless. I am sponsoring her training with James Cooler of Cooler Horsemanship, a natural horsemanship program based on the ANTRUM Method.
Molly is a horse that is very sweet and loves human companionship. She is green and coming along quite nicely. It has been fascinating watching James ground work her and recently he got in the saddle and walked and trotted her. I watched a session where he was working with her backing up while mounted... she made great progress. It is my understanding that Mary of The Galloping Mind will soon be doing a post on Molly and her training. Click on that blog periodically (or follow it!) if you are interested in reading more about this fine mare.
Molly is a delicately framed Quarter Horse, very lady like I would say. James is obviously a bit big for her and is riding her in a big roping saddle. Two photos down from here, you can see her with two young girls. I believe Molly is about 14.1 hands.
Her disposition is one to want to please her humans and I would say she is really quite smart as she seems to be learning quickly.
We often go out and brush her in the field and when we leave, she follows us to the gate.
She is currently being pasture boarded with two other mares sharing her paddocks and shed and they get along really well.
She is listed through Red Dog Farm for an adoption fee of $1,500. That really is a steal and also consider who is training her. Click on his website and you will be amazed at what a talented man James Cooler is with horses. If you are interested in Molly, feel free to ask me any questions here on my blog and I will also encourage you to call Red Dog Farm directly and ask for Garland.
