Amazing Older Gentleman
Meet Shoshoni "Shoni". This beautiful strawberry roan appaloosa gelding is a posterboy for senior horses everywhere! He is 33 years old (YES, he is reg'd and his DOB is 3-13-79)! And to top that, he is in GREAT weight, is SOUND and still has some brain cells left (plenty in fact)!
YOU can be a part of this beautiful living breathing amazing horse and help show the world that old doesn't mean you have to look or feel bad! YOU can sponsor Shoni for as little as $20/month!
His teeth are the area that give him the most "age"....
Shoni likes to graze but basically just gets a big wad of grass or hay and sucks on it throughout the day but he still gets to feel like a real horse and enjoys his private pasture.
He survives well by living off Complete Senior Feed
