Cupcake is as sweet as her name and loves ALL food. She would love for someone to bake her some homemade horsie cupcakes—she promises to be the best taste-tester ever! She loves people and other horses, and will become very attached to her herd mates. She will come to your whistle when loose in the field, especially if she knows you’re going to feed her. Her foster has started saddle training with her, and Cupcake is showing willingness and promise. If you want a horse that will turn heads as she prances around your field and will make people stop to take pictures, then she’s your girl. She is easy to catch and easy to lead, and an easy keeper in the stall or in the field. She is extremely intelligent and is your typical Arabian. She is still a little worried about the farrier, but is getting better. She loves to be groomed and will stand all day for you to brush her and braid her mane. She will not be for a beginner but would be just fine for anyone with horse experience. If you would like to learn more about Cupcake and follow her progress, staff at the West Virginia Horse Network can connect you with her trainer for a chat. Please contact them today if you are interested in bringing this beauty home.
