Clara is now looking for a home as a non-ridden companion.
Clara is as sweet as they come and is very inquisitive. On arrival at Bransby Horses, Clara was found to have extensive damage to one of her eyes which meant this had to be removed. Despite this, she gives everything in life 110% and it certainly doesn't slow her down!
Spending just five minutes with Clara will have you wanting to spoil her rotten, and this is what she hopes to find in a Perfect Partner! She can be slightly worried in new situations and would benefit from a quiet one to one home environment. Once Clara has decided that you're her human, there is no halting the love that will come your way. She really is a joy to have on the yard.
Clara enjoys any opportunity to learn and would love for someone to provide her with plenty of enrichment and in-hand walks so she can explore the local area.
Clara would benefit from someone with experience in weight management as Clara has historically suffered from laminitis, so this is something that will need management to limit the potential of future outbreaks.
Description: Clara is a 16-year-old, 11.3hh, black, Welsh cross mare.
Stabling/Shelter: Currently out 24/7 with access to a field shelter and will happily stable.
Companionship: Clara lives in a herd of mares with similar management needs. She is passive within the herd and sits toward the bottom of the hierarchy.
Forage/Feed: Not on any hard feed and on restricted grazing to manage her weight. Given a low-calorie hay/straw mix through the winter months if grazing becomes too sparse.
Rugs – Clara is not rugged.
Ailments – Clara suffers with allergies through the summer months and benefits from wearing a fly mask. She has a history of laminitis which will require management to limit future outbreaks.
Medication – N/A
Farrier: Trimmed 6 weekly. She is good for the farrier.
Dentist: Sedated as part of Bransby Horses standard procedure.
Vet: Good for the vet.
