Winnie is a 22-year-old sabino Paint Horse mare. She lost her right eye several years ago and has adjusted well. Her left eye is a beautiful blue. Although ridden in the past, she has an old stifle injury and suspensory issues that led to her retirement from riding, however she is pasture sound. Winnie is a wonderful companion horse who gets along very well with her other pasture mates and will follow humans around like a puppy dog. She is content living outside 24/7 or in a stall with daily turnout. Could she be your #righthorse?
