Halfa (ARG) (Click here for Past Performances)
"Halfa" is an Argentinian bred mare and is 13 years old. She is an iron horse as she raced until the age of 11. Indeed, she even raced
after being in foal. She is quite classy and was blacktyped in stakes races in her native Argentina. Halfa raced a total of 34 times and earned about
Kim von Disterlo of Kimberlee Farms went to the feed lot where killer buyers take all unclaimed horses and haul them to Mexico for slaughter. It
is so unfortunate and such a cruel fate for these horses to end up at auction. We want to thank Caroline Betts of SCTR that assisted us with the auction
and bidding. Kim was there with her own horse trailer and transported Halfa to her facility.
Halfa has been transferred to our facility at Bear Creek Stables and will be trained by Jenny Whitman. Jenny describes Halfa as being very quiet and
believes she will make an excellent trail horse. Halfa is sound, has all of her shots and just had her feet done and her teeth floated. She is a
very pretty mare. We are training her to be a trail horse and she will be available for adoption around August 1, 2012.
