About Sundae

Sundae was removed from negligent owners by the SPCA of Texas and placed with Bluebonnet.

History

Nothing is known of Sundae’s history before coming to Bluebonnet.  The trainer who worked with her for the Training Challenge felt she had probably been ridden sometime in the past, but that she was not trained well and had become defensive.

Health / Lameness

Sundae has no known health or lameness problems.

Other

Her foster home has found that Sundae does not like being stalled or confined, but she does do well out on pasture and has been fine with her gelding.

Evaluation and Training

Sundae was enrolled in the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge but had to drop out when she developed a bad sbscess.  She had a few rides, but she’ll need training once she’s healed.

Her foster home has been working with Sundae on her ground manners while treating her abscess.  She stood quietly, without being tied, while they treated her abscess.  She doesn’t like to stand tied, but she is improving with consistent work and reminders.  Her foster home has found that Sundae loves to be groomed, so maybe she had some great care and handling earlier in her life!

She’ll be further evaluated once her abscess has completely healed.
