Gimme Shelter Challenge 2021


Make Demi your Valentine!

September 1, 2020:

Demi has started liberty work in the round pen and some groundwork. She enjoys walking over the bridge and stands quietly and patiently in hand while waiting for what’s next. She does still have some nervousness and confidence issues, and is difficult to catch, but is working toward overcoming those issues.

June 7, 2020:

Demi is gaining more confidence with humans. She can be caught though she is still shy about it and is now enjoying being pet in her pen without being haltered. She is sweet and wants to learn but is still cautious.

Update January 6, 2020:

Demi is very curious and interested in people.  She has been haltered and did not show signs of understanding a halter.  She is allowing us to approach her in her pen and is starting to get more confident with our presence.  Demi is showing signs that she has had very little, to no contact with people before coming to us.  But we have already worked our way to being able to touch her nose and face.  So she is warming up to the idea of human touch.  There is also the possibility she is pregnant.

Demi is a 2 (?) year old grade bay mare that also came to THS from south of Cuba. If she truly is a long 2 year old, she has nice growth. She has a kind eye and for a feral is not overly reactive to people, but it is also obvious she has not been handled. She has been exposed to stallions and could possibly be in foal for 2020. In quarantine and hopefully eligible for our 2020 GS challenge. Not available for adoption.
