Quarter Horse Mare for Sale in Grand Island, NE
Dolly was broke in her younger years, but was a broodmare for most of her life. Her previous owner said that she had a bacterial infection which caused her to lose a bunch of weight. Dolly is very gentle and sweet. She can be ridden, but she needs some work. The perfect home for Dolly would be one with someone who has a lot of time to just love and take care of her, and who have children or grandchildren that they want to lead around on her. She is not sound for breeding due to being inverted. After having a dozen foals or more, Dolly just needs a nice place to retire. She still needs to put on about 200-300 more pounds. Dolly will make a great companion, or lead line horse. More info and pics at www. ShadyAcres6. com on the Shady Acres Horse Rescue of Nebraska page.
About Grand Island, NE
In 1857, 35 German settlers left Davenport, Iowa, and headed west to Nebraska to start a new settlement on an island known by French traders as La Grande Isle, which was formed by the Wood River and the Platte River. The settlers reached their destination on July 4, 1857, and by September had built housing using local timber. Over the next nine years, the settlers had to overcome many hardships, including blizzards and conflicts with Native Americans. They set up farms but initially had no market to sell their goods until a market opened at Fort Kearny. When the Pike's Peak Gold Rush began, Grand Island was the last place travelers could obtain supplies before they crossed the plains.
