Gene Simmons

Approx. 2 years old

10.3 hands

Gene was wandering the streets of a local city and picked up by animal control services where he was housed at the County barn until someone would come and claim him. No one came.

Although he is in good weight, his hooves have not been cared for and he is very defensive and scared.

Gene is also intact and soon to be gelded.

Although he is slow to trust, he is coming around quickly and will be available for adoption once fully rehabilitated.  He is a fancy mover and would be adorable pulling a carriage.

Shannon T.

Approx. 3 years old

10.2 hands

Shannon was found along with Gene and they are clearly very bonded to each other.

Unlike Gene, Shannon is thin and her hooves are in desperate need of some TLC.  She appears to be wormy, but with proper care and appropriate treatment, her health is coming around.

She is also slow to trust and full of brace.  She requires patience and strong leadership and then comes along quickly.

Shannon picks up all 4 feet, ties and loves kisses on her nose.
