This is Cheerio a miniature horse. She is at the sanctuary temporarily while waiting to find a new home. Cheerio was surrendered to the sanctuary as she was acting aggressively to the donkeys at the farm where she lived. She is with several miniature donkeys who definitely keep their distance from her. She is very friendly to humans and enjoys human companionship. Miniature horses are often interbred in order to produce the small stature. This can produce defects such as bowed legs or heart issues and can cause the animal to have a short life. I hope Cheerio finds a new forever home soon.
