Confiscated by Marin Animal Control on June 1, 2013 and placed into SERRA's hands, this yearling was in very poor starvation condition.
The colt was designated 'domesticated feral' which means although he was owned and domiciled on a ranch, he was never touched or handled. Bred out of the famous Harris Ranch stallion Tizbud, this colt deserved a LOT better than poor treatment from his Novato owner.
With good veterinary guidance and exacting volunteer daily care, the colt grew beautifully. Phoenix is his new name. And rising from the ashes of his poor condition he has!
Very easy to train and a quick learner. In the Parelli world he has a Left Brain Extrovert horsenality, medium to low spirit. Excellent curiosity and loves learning new and different things. A LOT of try in this colt. Trailer loads, good for the farrier, colt started by Erin Fowle, Parelli 3-Star Instructor and now being developed by Erin as a solid riding horse.
Phoenix is Parelli started with all ground handling games and continues his learning in natural horsemanship.
Phoenix has been adopted by one of our own SERRA volunteers, Dayna Stagg. Congratulations and thank you, Dayna!
