We are the Mustang Fillies
Rounded up from a reservation in Nevada, we are two Mustang fillies, Cheyenne and Maya. We lucky to be alive. Untouched by human hands, and now at Canham Farm Horse Rescue in Scotts Valley, volunteers are working tirelessly to build our trust and eventually help us become wonderful human companions. We are nervous and shy but we’re told we are as cute as two buttons! If you’d like to virtually adopt us, please scroll down the page and tick Cheyenne and Maya. You may also virtually adopt us individually.
My name is ZiZi. I am approximately 13.2 hands. I was confiscated from my original owner in Santa Clara County. I have had one foal, Cupid, who has been adopted. I am very jumpy and scared at times because I have some bad memories. I am available for virtual adoption so I can be cared for while I am being rehabilitated, re-trained. I am slowly learning to trust humans again.
My name is YaYa. I was named after the famous English Manchester City soccer player, YaYa Touré because I like playing with soccer balls. I am approximately 2 years old and was abandoned by my humans. I am very clever and Julia and the Canham Farm Horse Rescue volunteers have taught me how to lead and tie and have my feet trimmed. I am available for virtual adoption. think I am Arabian and Pinto.
They call me Dakota and I was saved from a kill pen in Texas the day before I was due to go to slaughter. I was pregnant at the time. I now live at Canham Farm Horse Rescue, my foal , Sammy, has been adopted and I am being rehabilitated and coached. I am sound and healthy and am available for virtual adoption while I wait for my forever home.
I am Lulu.
I am approximately 10 years old and about 13.2 hands. I am really good with children and have even given rides to kids as young as 2 at birthday parties. I am quite sensitive and love to be groomed and loved on. Please consider virtually adopting me, or if you like you can come and visit me. I always love having children around.
Well, hello everyone. My name is Sunset and I fancy myself as quite the comedian. I like to play tricks on Julia and the volunteers by turning on light switches, undoing stall doors, tipping up my grooming bin, and much, much, more. I’m pretty much a permanent resident here. Julia rides me and I get lots of attention. My best friend is Lulu. I’m told I am an Arabian/Saddlebred cross, and that I am a registered half-Arabian. I don’t really care about that. I just love to be fed, groomed and loved on.
