Brocca by tanikel Brocca by tanikel
Freedom Hill Horse Rescue
Owings, MD | May 10th, 2014
Canon 5D MkII



Available for adoption.
My best horsey friend.  It can't be a coincidence that he's the same age as my husband.  ;)
Brocca is a 30 year-old Standardbred gelding with Cushings disease.  It does affect his ability to be ridden - he's okay for very light riding as long as he isn't having a flare-up.  He's our typical old man - greeting everyone with the "angry horse from hell" face only to sell his soul for some cuddling.  Chest scratches and jaw rubbings will make you his best friend.  He has no problem standing still resting his muzzle either on top of your head or on your shoulders basking in the love.

I feel like he should have a walking cane.

Haha, he probably should.  He's probably the human equivalent of 70-80.  The face he uses to greet people could easily be translated to "get off my lawn!"  :lmao:
