As some of you may know, Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom, courage and war. Athena was one of the wisest gods, and helped to give heroes courage. Which I like to think represents me!
When the SAHA team found me at the dogger pens I was alone, but not once did I let that get me down. I stood bravely hearing loud voices and people shouting numbers at me. Once the yelling stopped I wasn't sure what was going on, and to be honest the horses around me seemed really stressed and nervous. Once most of the people had left I waited, till someone walked up to me. Their eyes seemed a lot kinder than some of the others who visited me earlier. I felt comfortable with them, and bravely followed them into a big scary box. Then we arrived at a new place, it was much quieter than the small sale yard before. These horses also seemed different, they weren't scared or nervous so I didn't need to be either!
When the girls noticed my brave personality, they gave me the name Athena, and rightly so!
I love my people and they love me, they say I am great to handle and love attention. I hold my weight really well too! My only downfall is that I can't be ridden due to my bad conformation but if you have the room I would love to spend my days hanging out with you. I even would love some small humans of my very own, I've heard from my friends here that they give the best hugs and usually have the tastiest treats!
If you would like to meet me please fill in an adoption application online, I can't wait!
If you aren't looking for a horse to adopt, could you maybe consider sponsoring me till I find a home of my own?
Love Athena xx
