A 20-year-old horse that’s suffered through hardship and adversity needs a new home to live out the rest of her life.

Island County Animal Control Officer Carol Barnes explained that the quarter horse was “badly neglected” by a Whidbey Island resident and was taken away from her by the courts.

The mare was rehabilitated by a horse-loving volunteer, but now she’s healthy and ready to be adopted. She’s been renamed “Little Bit.”

“She’s a happy girl who just wants love,” Barnes said. “She’s a survivor.”

Barnes said the horse would make an ideal companion animal for humans or other horses, though she’s too old to perform. She’s sweet, likes to be brushed and is very low-maintenance.

Anyone interested in adopting the horse should call 360-929-1732.
