CowGirl the Mare


CowGirl is one of our beautiful sanctuary animals here at Lucky Glider Ranch. She was brought here by one of our veterinary assistants after buying a piece of property that had horses on it. This horse is one of the most gentle and easy to handle animals on the ranch. CowGirl is about 20 years old as of the Fall of 2019. She is in good health and cooperates fully when it’s time for a health check or hoof trims. 


There’s also something special about CowGirl–she is our shepherdess. That’s right, she looks after the sheep here at the sanctuary and is in a dedicated field with them with access to half of the barn for cover. If CowGirl alerts or lets out a big snort, the sheep will all huddle behind her for protection. 


CowGirl is very gentle with the smaller animals. She literally tip-toes around them when it’s feeding time and everyone comes running into the barn to eat. It’s very sweet to see how she looks over the herd. 


Are you interested in virtually adopting CowGirl? If you would like to help her with veterinary bills, feed, and shared shelter, you can donate any monthly amount and receive personal updates on CowGirl.
