My story 💕
Lakota has been through a lot before finding a home at our ranch. She was bred to be a winning harness racehorse named Miss Gorgeous (W1640). Her father was "Artsplace," a harness racer who won over $3 million and broke world records in his career. However, after only winning $22,279 and failing to succeed like her father, she was hauled off the track to be a broodmare (breeding stock).
Lakota gave birth to 7 foals in a row, pushing her body to its limits and causing her hormones to become imbalanced. Once she could no longer produce steady foals, she was placed into a kill pen. A sanctuary named Starry Skies scooped Lakota up before she shipped where we were able to connect with her to bring her home. Lakota is still a little distant to others due to her trauma, but she has gradually shown us that there is still a fire in her that wants to shine.
Lakota loves to run and play in the pasture when she thinks no one is looking. Lakota is the "big sister" of the herd and keeps all the others horses on their best behavior. When standing at the posts, you may hear Lakota nicker at Charlie since she has a big crush on him.
She can be a little shy on the trails sometimes, but is a wonderful partner once you show her she can trust you. She listens closely and takes good care of you!
