Featured Adoptable Horse
Today we talk to Jennifer Wittig of The American Saddlebred Legacy Foundation, Inc., in Eminence, Ky. This month’s ASPCA Right Horse adoptable horse of the month is I’m a Designer, aka Joey. Joey is looking for a person as special as he is. He rides but has issues with his groundwork and anxiety. His placement fee is negotiable for the right home. He is special so an experienced handler is a must and it is asked that you come and meet him in person unless the foundation already knows you. For more info on Joey, click here.
