Male Paso Fino named Francisco available for adoption



Breed: Paso Fino
Primary Breed: Paso Fino
Age: Adult
Color: Chestnut/Sorrel
Sex: Male

Francisco is proof that cute things come in small packages. He was born sometime in 2013, and is just a little guy at about 13hh. He was found as a stray and came to us from the local animal control, so we're not sure of his background or breeding, but he is very fancy, is of Spanish type, and gaited, so we call him our 'Pony-Fino'. He had obviously not been handled much when we got him, but is super smart and learned very quickly to do all the things a fine young horse should know how to do. He is in pre-ride training, but will need a smaller person to ride him. He has been trailered a lot, has been ponied on many trail rides, and is generally a nice little guy. Because he is young and 'green,' we will require that he go to a pretty savvy home with a good understanding of horse psychology.
