Horse: Wind Flight King’s El Dorado, or Frito, a 4-year-old 9.2-hand buckskin Shetland Pony gelding in Oklahoma City, Okla.
Organization: Nexus Equine

Wind Flight King’s El Dorado, aka Frito, is a very sweet young pony. He is double registered: American Shetland Pony Club/American Miniature Horse. Frito loves to be brushed and would excel with further training, and he wouldn’t mind just hanging out and being someone’s best friend. He is passive in a herd and will let a more dominant horse push him around. He would be best suited for a child that knows about ponies and horses. Frito stands tied and for the farrier. He is an absolutely beautiful pony and would be great asset to your family. He is a complete doll and loves attention and the camera! Frito will soon begin learning how to drive! Stay tuned for videos and updates! He is up to date on: Coggins, vaccines, deworming, and dental and farrier work, and he is microchipped.
