Organization: Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna, OH

Get to Know Comet

This week’s Adoptable Horse, Comet, is a sweet gelding who was retired from driving a buggy. He is sound, healthy, and looking for a loving home to take him in. Comet gets along with others and is friendly to be around. He is respectful, but he loves attention! Comet rides around quietly and is a total gentleman. He has a great personality. He should make a fantastic trail horse!
