Darby 's Story
Darby was saved from slaughter when HiCaliber rescued her from Ontario Auction on March 29, 2016.
What a cool girl. She's a solid built 15.3, 7 years old and willing to take a chance. Initially, she was terrified of us, she didn't want to be caught, handled or looked at. But we can't say we blame her after being dumped at auction.
We gave her some time alone and pulled her out today for the first time. So guarded, yet so hopeful. Scared of everything that moved, she was ready for the next shoe to fall. After just a few minutes, she settled and realized she could relax a bit.
Michelle had to admit, she was waiting for the other shoe to fall too. There had to be something wrong with Darby. There is no other explanation.
Nope. Not a thing. She was awesome.
Sure, a little anxious, unsure and distracted at first, but she ended on such a good note. She sucked it up, took a chance and trusted Michelle. They took a little trail ride alone, watched some test rides and just enjoyed each others company.
Darby is going to make someone a fabulous horse. She's going to be one of those that loves HER person, wants one rider and will go through hell and fire for them.
