Pecos is the baby at the sanctuary.  He belonged to a breeder of paint horses but lacked "color" (flashy splashes of white on his coat) so he was given away at the age of 8 months a homeless family!

We discovered Pecos a year later, almost knee deep in mud in an 8' X 10' pen attached to a condemned trailer house.  Tarps hung from the sides of the pen and flapped in the wind.  There was no pasture or hay.  A year of malnourishment had left him stunted for his age.

Before coming to the sanctuary, Pecos spent a few months with Tamara Eichorn where he was gelded with no complications and, for the first time in a year, he was able to run in a pasture.  Tamara told us what a wonderful feeling it was to see him so happy to be able to run once again.

Pecos has a sweet, playful nature and has found many new friends at the sanctuary among the other geldings.   He has plenty of space to run and play.

He is available for placement in an appropriate home where he will receive the correct saddle training.
