Sweet Older Mare Needs a Loving Home
3 (1 - calm; 10 - spirited)
Thoroughbred Mare for Sale in Palo Alto, CA
This mare has excellent ground manners and a very sweet temperment. She is sound and totally rideable but not appropriate for a complete beginner rider. She is somewhat sensitive and likes a quiet rider who won't bounce on her back or pull on her mouth. She is not at all spooky and is perfect to tie and trailer. She has a been there, done that attitude and is even great to ride at the beach. She is up to date on her shots and her teeth have been done regularly. Price negotiable to a great home! Must find a place for her soon!
About Palo Alto, CA
Prior to the arrival of Europeans, the Ohlone lived on the San Francisco peninsula; in particular, the Puichon Ohlone lived in the Palo Alto area. The area of modern Palo Alto was first recorded by the 1769 party of Gaspar de Portolá, a 63-man, 200-horse expedition from San Diego to Monterey. The group overshot Monterey in the fog and when they reached modern-day Pacifica, ascended Sweeney Ridge and saw the San Francisco Bay. Portolá descended from Sweeney Ridge southeast down San Andreas Creek to Laguna Creek (now Crystal Springs Reservoir), thence to the San Francisquito Creek watershed, ultimately camping from November 6–11, 1769, by a tall redwood later to be known as El Palo Alto. Thinking the bay was too wide to cross, the group retraced their journey to Monterey, and never became aware of the Golden Gate entrance to the Bay.
