Valhalla the brave warhorse faced her last battle today and she won. She did not die in pain, alone, or after she was crippled beyond hope. She died on a good day with her beloved Archer only a few feet away. Good bye Vali. You were loved.Description:
Vali is a wonderful lovely lady who knows what she is about and behaves appropriately. She is wonderful for the vet, farrier, loading, bathing, mounting, etc. She is a great arena or trail horse and is not spooky. She can be ridden on the trails, through water and over bridges. She will take any position in the string and is gentle, calm, and tolerant enough for beginner riders. However, she does have two flaws. She is herdbound, meaning she does not want to go out without at least one other horse to accompany her. Also, she doesn't always do well with new horses and it is necessary to make sure that strange horses do not travel close behind her on trails or she might kick them. She is fine with horses she knows being behind her, even my rude gelding who likes to get way too close to her.History:
Vali is available for adoption, however, anyone who is interested in her will need to spend considerable time with her before taking her on a trial basis to make sure there is a good match.
Bred in Canada, this mare was imported to WA as a competition horse by a gal who sold her in 2007. The folks who bought her had big plans for what they were going to do with her, but for one reason or another those plans fell through. I actually originally purchased this mare from the auction in the summer of 2009 and rode her myself for several months before finding her a home. Unfortunately things went south with that home and they gave her away before I could get her back. In August 2011 she appeared back at the auction after having a half-Andalusian colt pulled off of her. She isn't in great shape, but she remembers who she is.
