Promise is an 18 year old Sheldon Mustang who arrived at AAM undernourished, loaded with parasites and extremely pregnant. She’d never been handled by humans, so her hooves were also in very bad shape, making walking difficult for her. “J.J.” from northern Oregon saw a photo of her and fell in love. After Promise’s health issues were addressed and she was familiar with humans, she travelled to her new home. A huge thanks to Kate Beardsly from Mustangs To The Rescue, who braved the treacherous winter to transport Promise safely before her foal was born. Promise gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Earth Day, and will now live out her life with J.J. as a companion animal.
