The Parelli Foundation is committed to disclosing any circumstance or condition related to any horse we offer for sale no matter how potentially insignificant.
Surprise was treated as a yearling and again in September of 2016 for Immune Mediated Myositis (IMM). IMM is a condition in which the immune system of the horse attacks the skeletal muscles causing rapid atrophy of the muscles along the top line. It is easily visible and often occurs following a respiratory illness. IMM is remarkably responsive to corticosteroids and generally resolves without any long term repercussions.
Surprise is not currently suffering from IMM. If you have questions about Surprise, her health history, or her present condition we encourage you to contact your veterinarian, contact us, or request a pre-purchase exam by the veterinarian of your choice.
“We initially sought out Natural Horsemanship to better relate to our horses as our partners in serving the disabled. But so much more happened. We learned very soon that for this partnership to work we had to change. You have to become different in order to be successful in having this new relationship. But for someone who likes animals, especially horses, Natural Horsemanship will help them make their journey to personal strength, resiliency and finding some peace within. They will be taught from the first day that what they attempt will never be perfect.” Courage Reins is a Therapeutic Horsemanship Center. Their Instructor, Horse Enrichment Coordinator, Angie Moody works with 3* Parelli Professional Lillan Roquet.
The Parelli Foundation “Rehoming 4 Life” workshop in Petaluma, California, laid the groundwork for life saving cooperation between horse rescue operations, a veterinarian, and ranches to save horses threatened by the Valley Fires in California. Through amazing teamwork, the animal hospital, rescues, and volunteers together helped rescue, treat, and care for over 300 animals. Read More….
