Belle is a bay Morgan mare born around 1990. Belle came to us as a three year old who was going to be euthanized because she could not be ridden or trained even by the most gentle and holistic methods. She has several behavior problems, most notably that she will not let us handle her. To Belle, these are not behavioral problems at all, but simply are traits she has so that she could live the life she came to live. We provided her with a place to just be a horse for the rest of her life. She will not let us halter her so we can not do much with her. She loves living outside with a large enclosed run in shed and has three other horse friends for whom she is the boss mare. She is very beautiful and is friendly over the fence. Sometimes she will even let us groom her beautiful mane, but only from the opposite side of the fence.
“Life is a compilation of choices. Freedom is the ability to make those choices. Wisdom comes from learning from each choice. Forgiveness comes from understanding that there is never a right or wrong choice. And Happiness comes from knowing that the choices I have made have lead me to exactly where I needed to be.”
