Sweet Older Mare Needs Forever HomeNext Ad »

Tennessee Walking Mare for Sale in Potlatch, ID
Sweet mare, recently rescued from being loaded on a slaughter truck. Past not known. Slightly underweight but gaining rapidly. Apparently no physical problem, just not enough feed. Said to be broke to ride, was briefly ridden bareback in a halter. Has been led around with kids on her. Will evaluate further when weather allows. She is gaited. Sensitive on gravel, but with proper hoof care that should improve. May have ringbone. Doesn't seem to bother her much. Adoption contract required. Many pics available
About Potlatch, ID
In 1903, Frederick Weyerhaeuser incorporated the Potlatch Lumber Company (eventually becoming the Potlatch Corporation), naming his son Charles as the President. The directors of the company selected Canadian lumberman William Deary to build a mill somewhere within the company's timber holdings. The townsite was chosen because of proximity to the company's large holdings of Western White Pine on the Palouse River. Potlatch was chosen as the mill site, and in 1904, crews working under W.A. Wilkinson of Minnesota began constructing what would be the largest white pine sawmill in the world.
