Hi, my name is Venus. I am approx 3 years old, and standing about 14'3HH. I am a very outgoing gal, who loves attention. I am so thankful to everyone at Hopeful Hearts and those who support them for saving me. I came out of North Carolina where I was with my mom and brother. Me and my brother were still nursing on our dear old momma, bless her heart. I was weaned and taken on a trailer to a dark auction house where they haltered me for the first time and tried to take me through this big scary ring. I was rearing and scared so a kill buyer bought me and threw me on a trailer with other horses, hauled me 10 hours where I was ran into another auction holding pen. I finally got my turn in the auction ring, except this time they didn't try to halter me and lead me in. I was the last horse of the night, so most every one was already gone or had spent all they had. I stopped in the middle of the ring and looked directly at my friends at hopeful hearts, and they knew they had to save me. That night they gave me apples and carrots and a lot of love, they taught me how to walk correctly on a lead and how to load in a trailer the right way without hitting me and screaming at me and running me in. I was scared still, but I tried really hard and I succeeded. Since then I haven't tried to rear again on the lead....because there has been no need to. I know now what to do.
Keep in mind, I am still young, so I don't know everything yet, but I am eager to learn if you will teach me and give me the chance to show you how thankful I am for a happy ever after where I am safe and loved.
