This beautiful mare came into HorseWorld in August 2015 as part of a huge group of feral horses – this included stallions and mares with foals. Sierra had a colt foal at foot when she arrived – and they were both extremely frightened and reactive to people. Sierra probably was the worst out of all this group. Her foal successfully was weaned when old enough and it was apparent that she would be expecting another one soon.
Sierra was paired up with other mares we believed to be pregnant and allowed to settle, she gave birth to a healthy filly in the spring which we then weaned at 7 months.
Sierra has made huge progress and is much more trusting of people. She is now happy to eat from a hand and has been having regular one-to-one handling sessions with one of our trainers. She is now able to wear a head collar and is continuing to improve every day.
