Micco (King)

The sanctuary was contacted about Micco from a woman in Kansas that had purchased this gelding from an auction, once she got him home and really got a good look at him she realized he was not a barrel prospect. He was terrified of people and needed a quiet place to regain what the auction pipeline had taken from him.

He is a registered Quarter Horse by the name of Shadow's Cattleman foaled May 17th, 2005 in Burden, KS sold at the Double T Auction in El Dorado, KS for $50.

We drove to Kansas and picked up this scared little one year old stallion and brought him to live at the sanctuary. Rohan, our little one-eyed 3 strikes Mustang took him under his wing and helped him adjust to this new world of quiet, peaceful pastures and kind and loving words. It took quite a bit of time for Micco to come around, if you tried to touch him he would shake as thought he had a motor attached somewhere. We just let him be a horse for a good 2 years or more. Nothing was asked of him and he grew to be one of the most loving, and kind horses you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.

He now hangs with his BFF JJ (Jumpin' Jack Flash)

He is home, forever.
