Our first horse arrived in November 2012. "Diamond", or "DeeDee" as she prefers, is a registered paint mare from Florissant, Colorado.
DeeDee had a chronic back injury that prevented her from being ridden. She also had some trust issues, and was very shy with new humans.
DeeDee was our lead mare for a long time, and did a wonderful job of looking after our blind horses. (Unless she was really hungry, in which case she would try to steal their food when we weren't looking. She's a rascal.)
After 7 years of rehabilitation at Wild Places, DeeDee was evaluated by a professional trainer and deemed to be healthy and ready for riding. DeeDee was transferred to Safe Landing Horse Rescue, where she found her 'forever home' with a young lady in Fairplay (pictured here). We're so proud of her!
