Ballerina- Spon by Denise

Ballarina used to be a dressage horse and sadly was being given away for free.  When horses are advertised as free, you many not realize that this is an invitation for a "kill buyer".  They literally comb Craig's list and newspapers looking for free horses.  Each horse is worth about $800 if they go to the slaughter.  So "kill buyers" look for free horses to bring to the slaughter.  They will even pose as a nice person or family to make the owner think that they are nice people and would never hurt their horse.

Ballarina is safe at Villa Chardonnay and free from worry about going to the slaughter. She is a prima donna who likes to rule the roost, but she is very sweet. She often roams free at Villa and enjoys the company of Carter.
