WA Feedlot Horses

I wasn't going to list these horses but I just can't help it. They deserve so much better than the fate they are being handed. These are all from the Washington feedlot and the only thing we can do is share their story and their pictures. I'd love to take in these deserving horses but we are turning them away as it is. If wishes were horses.

Valerina - 11yr Gray Arabian Mare - $400

Valerina is said to be in foal by her previous owner. She is easy to handle, loves attention, and followed me around wanting to be friends. She looks to be in okay condition but could use some good nutrition. I don't know if she is broke to ride but she is at least halter broke and quite cute. I would guess her to be approx 14'1hh and approx 11 years old. 

AVAILABLE!

Villager - 20yr Chestnut Gelding - $500

Villager is a very sweet and easy going gelding who aims to please. He appears to be a been there done that gelding who is said to be 20 years old, and confirmed by looking at his teeth. He is easy to handle, tolerates weight, and does what is asked of him. I don't have any history on him besides an age from the previous owner, but I would be very surprised if he was not broke. Villager stands approx 15'2hh and has been gaining weight at the lot. He has a very cute slight dish to his face and a brightens up when given attention. 

AVAILABLE!

Visa Vi - 17yr Bay Roan Blanket Nez Perce Mare - $500

Visa Vi is a beautiful stoutly built mare who was most likely used as broodmare. She has a medium build I am guessing she stands approx 14'2hh. She was easy to handle and looks to be in overall good condition with no issues that I could find. Her hooves looked good from what I could see, and pictures do not do her justice. This is a nice mare with a very soft expression and a kind eye. 

AVAILABLE!

Vienne - 28yr Bay Blanket Appaloosa Mare - $400

Vienne is a senior foundation Appaloosa mare who has been previously used as a broodmare for Nez Perce horses. She is easy to handle, loving, and gentle on the ground. She is living history and this grand old mare deserves a retirement. Her hooves are in good condition and I saw no issues with her eyes, or signs of uveitis. She is gaining weight at the lot but really needs a soft place to land soon as she cannot compete with the new younger horses. 

AVAILABLE!

Vianka - 30yr Leopard Appaloosa Mare - $450

This senior mare should be as foundation as Appaloosas come. She is friendly, easy to handle, and looks to be in decent condition for her age. I don't have an exact age, but was told she is one of the seniors around 30 years old. She has been used as a broodmare to produce Nez Perce horses. Her hooves are in good condition and she is gaining weight at the lot. Her eyes appear to be good and besides age and needing some weight, I couldn't find any issues. She's a nice mare and a piece of living history. She is sold as grade, but I'm happy to share what history I know with her new purchaser.
