Alaqua Animal refuge furever friends of the week

June 9, 2014

alaquahorses“Hay!” My name is Ellie and my best friend is Little Ricky. We were born at Alaqua Animal Refuge in March of 2013. Our moms were rescued and brought to the safe haven of this amazing place called Alaqua. We are so lucky, because we have never known anything but love and outstanding care our entire lives here at Alaqua. I guess you could say we have been the “mane attraction” around here. We have been “horsing around” a lot! We love to play and run in the pastures! We are very close, and our greatest wish would be to find a home together. It would be okay for us to be separated, but we would really like to be with each other.

We are just one year old, and we are a joy to be around. The staff at Alaqua has a lot of “horse sense” and they’ve worked very hard with us, so we love to be groomed and we farrier nicely. We are said to be smart and well mannered, and we rarely ever “whine”!
