Bodhi (Bodhisattva) was born in captivity out of a wild mustang mare and had known mishandling in his young life which left him blind in one eye and suffering with lung and tracheal damage. He was then abandoned in a pasture for the next 7 years of his life and was never handled until Zeb’s took him in at the age of 8. Despite his chronic COPD and eyesight issues, he has proven to be the most insightful, kind and benevolent herd leader of our sanctuary family.
Bodhi still must take daily COPD medication but has excelled in his groundwork to become our ‘at will horse partnership’ ambassador showing what true partnership between horse and human can be. This lovely black horse is the teacher of new volunteers, comforter of the heartbroken and a beautiful greeter to the sanctuary.
