UPDATE: Bear has been adopted by a wonderful family in western Nebraska for their young granddaughter. He will be well loved. Bear is a 13 year old Pony of the Americans Gelding. POA’s were bred from Appaloosa and Shetland Pony lines and the result is a sweet natured and perfect sized pony for our young riders. Bear started life as a 4-H horse but came to live at the ranch after his owners outgrew him. He has one club foot, but that doesn’t stop him from wanting to trot and get into mischief. Bear is a favorite of many because of his small stature, big heart and lots of white space for painting! Bear had surgery on his leg the summer 0f 2016 due to some tendon issues and has fully healed up and is happy to be back in the program loving on kids and volunteers alike.
