Rosetta is a sweet small pocket pony who loves treats and is looking for a pasture to live out her retirement. She loves to see people and will approach for attention, scratches, and treats. Meal time is simply the best; you will love how she licks her chops waiting for her breakfast! Though her riding days are behind her, she would make an excellent companion to another horse and does well with a dominant mare. She also seems pretty happy on her own, though it would be great to see her with an equine buddy. She truly seems to enjoy long walks on the beach (or in the pasture if that is what you have) along with being groomed, pampered, and being treated like the queen she is. For day-to-day handling, she will need someone who can be assertive, particularly around meal times, but she is otherwise very easygoing. She would also do best with a big pasture to roam so she has plenty of room to move about and can dream her big pony dreams. Did we mention she is a volunteer favorite? She is up to date on her vaccinations, Coggins, dental care, farriery, and is microchipped. Adoption fee subject to change as her skills improve. Please fill out an interest in adoption form on our website to learn more and schedule an appointment at www.hsnt.org/equine-and-livestock. Is she your #righthorse?
