Quarter Horse Mare for Sale in Grand Island, NE
Dolly is a 1982 sorrel AQHA mare. She has a star, strip, snip, left fore sock and stocking on her hind legs. She was broke in her younger years, but was a broodmare for the majority of her life. She is coming along very well. She is no longer afraid, and is easy to be caught. She is progressing on her riding. Still a bit stubborn at reining, but she has never tried to do anything dangerous. Natalie was even riding her in the round pen. By the end of the summer, if she isn't adopted, we will probably use her for a lease / 4- H horse. All Dolly needs is a family to spend lots of time and give her love for the rest of her life! More info and pics at www. ShadyAcres6. com on the rescue horse 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.
