To talk to someone about adoption
Goldie is a 16yo Bay Standardbred mare with a quirky personality. Goldie retired from racing in June 2020 after having 108 starts and earning just over $27000. She retired sound, just too slow and had enough of racing.
She is good to handle, shoe, worm and float etc. but can be a bit stand-offish until she gets to trust you. She will test you, but is not nasty, so needs someone that is firm but kind to establish her trust.
Goldie was with a foster carer for 6 months to let down from racing and was restarted in groundwork. Her original owner said that she has been ridden in the past but not for several years so would need to be started again by someone with experience. She has recently spent the past 2 years with a family, and has been handled by children. Goldie is sound and in good health, but does suffer from mild Queensland Itch so requires rugging and treatment to keep this under control during the warmer months.
She does tend to be dominant with other horses at feed time, but is good around young horses.
