Maple came to the sanctuary in May 2019 when she was relinquished to us via the RSPCA, along with 10 other trotters. They were all in terrible condition; emaciated, neglected and terrified of humans. A few of them had young foals at foot too, including Maple with little Ash.
In the time that the trotters have been here, Maple in particular, they have blossomed. Once Ash was old enough she was weaned from her mother and we started the long journey in building a trust up with Maple. Maple responded well to clicker training and came around to the idea of a head collar and lead rope quickly, once she realised sweeties were involved.
Maple’s personality has really shone through and she has shown herself as a quite, affectionate mare. Although still a bit apprehensive in certain situations, she is a quick learner. She likes a groom and a fuss and will benefit from more regularity in her handling. Maple has a condition known as shivers in her hind leg whioch makes it difficult for her to hold her leg for the farrier, we have found that giving her a bute half hour before her trim makles things a lot easier for her. She adores a molassed lick.
