Jane arrived at ERAF with the Indiantown 12 alongside her mother, Sally. Jane is very special to us and will require a certain home as she is blind. There is no visible damage to her eyes, so we believe she has been blind since birth. She will need either her mother (Sally), or another quiet pony she can trust as a companion.

Suitability and Training

Temperament for Jane:
On a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being Calm and 5 being Spirited, Jane is a 3.00.

Best career/placement option for repurposing Jane:
    Pasture Mate


More about career/placement options:
Jane is a very sweet, special horse who has a come a long way from the scared, difficult-to-catch horse she was on arrival. With the persistence of staff and some very dedicated volunteers, Jane has learned many voice commands, enjoys grooming and stands for the farrier. She has even been started under saddle and can walk, trot and canter.
