About Butterscotch

Butterscotch was removed from negligent owners and placed with BEHS by the courts.  She blossomed into a gorgeous horse. She was very popular when she went up for adoption and was adopted to be a family horse in 2014.  She was returned in 2018 because her family no longer had time for her.

History

Nothing is known of Butterscotch’s history before she arrived at BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Butterscotch is blind in her right eye.  This does not seem to bother her.  She has no other known health or lameness issues.

Other

Butterscotch will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with youth non-pro Kendra Lewis.  She will be available for adoption starting on October 21, 2017 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Austin, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Butterscotch is a very endearing and loves people, if you go into the pasture with her she will not leave your side and gives you a lovely little nicker when she sees you. She loaded and travelled well and is very easy to handle and will back up with a light touch of your finger to her nose.  At her adopter’s home, she was ridden by teens and adults and worked on cattle.
