About Lovely Lark

Lovely Lark was surrendered to Bluebonnet when her owners were investigated for neglect.

History

Nothing is known of Lovely Lark’s history before coming to Bluebonnet.

Health / Lameness

Lovely Lark has low pasterns in the back and what appears to be an old hip injury (from before she came to Bluebonnet).  Neither seem to cause her problems.

Other

Lovely Lark was pregnant when she came into the rescue and had Sweet Sparrow in Late May.

Evaluation and Training

Lark acquired the adjective “Lovely” due to her beautiful, feminine head and her long, thick mane and tail.  She has a lively, high-stepping prance when she moves out.  Lark is easy to catch, handle, tie, and trailer.  Her foster home says that Lark is a joy to be around and she calls Lark her “Pocket Pony”.

Lark loves treats, petting, and grooming and would love a home with children who would spoil her.  She gets along well with her pasture mates, too, so she could be a nice companion to a lonely horse.

Lovely Lark is not broke to ride or drive.  Due to her low pasterns and hip injury, we do not believe she should be a riding pony.  She could be trained to drive or kept as a pet/companion.

She lives in a foster home with several different domestic and exotic animals, none of which bother her at all!

She is inconsistent when it comes to handling her feet, but her foster home is working with her.
