Description: Northwest Wine (Winnie) is a racetrack warrior.   We don’t know what she has done or where she has been for the last five years. However, someone took the time to retrain her. Winnie was just rescued at Mike’s Auction on September 12, 2015.   Winnie was ridden through the auction in a snaffle bit and western saddle. She was so quiet at first everyone thought she was a Quarter horse. She has a big belly, likely full of worms and her feet are in poor condition. She was hungry and shut down and picked at whatever was edible out of the sand before she realized there was hay waiting for her.

December 2015 Update: We are pleased to announce that Northwest Wine has transferred to Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary. Winnie is a very kind mare to handle. Undersaddle, she was miserable. Anxious and jittery, she just hated being worked. Her temperament did not suit her to be a trail horse and it was decided that she would be much happier being a horse and working in a therapeutic program. Many thanks to Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary for providing Winnie a lifetime home and a purpose working with children.
