Our 'Horse of the Month' for January is a beautiful quarter horse, who's waiting for a new home.
Meet 'Amber' - an 8 year old quarter horse who came in as a rescue from Lake County.
"Amber came in with a herd of five." Says Dawn Keen of the Klamath Large Animal Division. "She came in with her mother, her mother got adopted our real quickly."
Shelter Volunteer Grace McFarland notes that while Amber isn't completely broke to ride, she's gentle, and makes friends easily...
"Once she bonds with you, she is your buddy. She will follow you. She lets you do whatever. She trusts you."
Amber is one of several horses waiting for adoption at the Klamath County Large Animal Shelter on Miller Island Road.

Quarter horses got their name for their success in sprint racing...and their ability to beat other breeds in the quarter mile.
