Description: Daisy is a classy and smart former broodmare who is sound and is in training at Bear Creek Stables with the team there. She quickly became a favorite with her kind and gentle personality. Although she was not trained post racing, she is showing every sign of enjoying being ponied on the trail and in the company of other horses and people. A real find with a good head. Don’t delay in completing your adoption application for her. Our good and sound horses go very quickly.
May 2016 Update: Daisy is one of three broodmares brought into the program late last year. Initially shy, and with little post-racing training, she was content to stay in her paddock mate’s (Jasmine-My Little Cokie) shadow.
But time spent on groundwork, desensitizing Daisy with blankets, tarps and the carrot stick, has paid off thanks to Serena’s patient handling. This smart, flashy gal looks forward to her daily training sessions, her eyes following the Bear Creek volunteers around when they arrive, as if to say “pick me”.
Daisy is an athletic, sound, but spirited mare, still finding her way from broodmare to riding horse. She is doing well lunging both on the line and at liberty in the round pen, and has recently been started under saddle.
We don’t know precisely where this Kentucky-bred mare’s career path will take her – trail horse, English or Western pleasure show prospect – but with her good looks and soulful charm, her future looks bright.
