Introducing Buttercup, a 2008 rescued Palomino mare. She is still a little skittish and learning to trust, leads well. Not sure what other training she has possibly had. Buttercup was in very poor physical condition and in foal when rescued. Her coat is weaned, and Buttercup has been declared healthy by the vet. She’s ready for her forever home!
