Featured Adoptable Horse
At the end of episode 9 of Barn Banter, we talk to Sara Strauss, the head trainer from Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Woodbine, Md. This month’s ASPCA Right Horse adoptable horse of the month is Miss Madeline, a 16-year-old Warmblood mare available for adoption.
Looking for a non-riding companion home, Madeline gets along well with both mares and geldings. She is currently on 12-hour turnout with an older OTTB mare who she cares for dearly. Madeline behaves well in a stall, but enjoys her outside time just as much. Madeline loves grooming time and is always down for a good ear scratch. This sweet girl would love a quiet home to retire and enjoy the good life.
