My Story

Shakira is a lovely bay mare, and mother to Dont’e and Free. She arrived with Dont’e at her side, and pregnant, as we later learned, with her filly. Shakira is quiet under saddle. She is blind in one eye and can get a little nervous on her blind side. She needs a confident rider that will give her courage. We have been riding her in a bit less bridle.

Rescue & Recover Story

We rescued Shakira with her colt Dont’e, along with 4 other horses, from the 8.5/East Everglades in SW Miami-Dade. She and the others were unconfined/at large, posing a danger to themselves and the public. Charges were filed by police against the owner. Shakira and Dont’e settled into their quarantine paddock upon arrival. Timid at first, Shakira and Dont’e became more trustful with patient handling. She arrived underweight and was nursing, so making sure she got the extra nutrition she and her colt needed was a priority. Shakira’s weight and health returned over the following three months, filling out nicely and her coat naturally gleaming.
