UPDATE: Bella has been adopted! She will soon be moving to her new home at Calan Horse Sanctuary in Highbury. We’re sure she will be very happy there.

Bella is a beautiful chestnut mare in need of some tender loving care. She is shy and timid at first, but will calm down once trust has been established.

This lovely girl was sold to her owner six months ago as a riding horse. However, her age and behavior towards riding, illustrated that she needs to retire and enjoy a peaceful life as a companion animal. The current owner has concerns that she may have been abused by her previous owner, hence why she didn’t return Bella to them after the trial period.

An experienced horse owner, with a gentle and loving nature is what Bella needs.

Volunteer photographer Amanda met Bella a few days ago for her photo shoot and said “I met Bella the Chestnut horse and she was lovely. Friendly, curious and quite the personality… You can see a few shots of her telling me off for sticking the camera in her face lol.”

Bella will be wormed and vaccinated before handover to her new family and an adoption fee of $50 applies.

Animal Actionist promotes non breeding of all rescued animals, particularly in the interest of breaking the cycle of unwanted farm animals (most of them males,) that find themselves with little time to find a new home and end up in danger of slaughter. All farm animals adopted via Animal Actionist are intended as family pets, and therefore the same rules that apply for non breeding of cats and dogs, applies to these animals too. If you apply to adopt you thereby agree and are bound to not use this animal for breeding.

All suitable applications are forwarded to the current custodian for consideration, and you will be contacted as soon as possible to discuss your offer further. Please understand that it may take a few days for us to respond to you depending on the amount of applications received, and it is never a case of first come, first served with animal adoptions, as we have to do our best to locate the absolute best homes for the animals. If you have any problems or further queries, please contact Animal Actionist direct via the “contact us” link. Thank you so much for caring for animals.
