Livy is a 16-year-old (in 2017) Belgian mare. Her story begins before she was born. Her mother was rescued from auction, pregnant and in bad shape. She began her recovery at Mylestone, and Livy was born here.

Livy has the illustrious heritage of the Belgian Cross, or Brabant, an ancient breed likely to be directly descended from the primitive Diluvial horse. They are the foundation to many European heavy horse breeds, and the basis of the Clydesdale. Belgians are so appreciated in the U.S. that several are kept at the Kentucky Horse Park. Livy is part of this magnificent heritage of one of the world’s most important breeds.

She is very attached to her pasture mate, Tommy, a pony, and needs to be with other horses. She needs a quiet, patient, experienced person who is not heavy handed. Livy can worry about things, and needs someone who can calmly show her the way. She is not sound for riding, but would make a great companion horse. She must be adopted out with Tommy, as the two are inseparable. We have hopes that this wonderful girl and her pint-sized friend will one day find a home, but until then, she needs sponsors and donors to help provide for her long term care.

If adoption is not for you, but you would love receiving her photo and an update monthly, then you can sponsor Livy!

Livy is another big favorite at Mylestone's Annual Open House. She loves all the attention, especially from children.
