Cherokee was abandoned in a stall with another horse and they were not found until they had begun to eat each others mane. He needed a forever home, free of trauma, and here he is.
Cherokee was a race horse that was beaten until he was sold to a child who decided he didn't want him and then to a trainer who left him behind. Yet Cherokee still loves people and being loved on. He is in his final stages of life.
Cherokee met our first mare, Peaches (she worked with special needs children and lived into her 40s, passing away in 2011), and became glued to her side for three years until she passed.
To be petted and loved.
Being hit/thinking he is going to be hit due to his history. He hates to be kept away from Skeeter (my main riding/working horse).
Cherokee has a bad history with humans, but still loves people to come and pet him and give him hugs. He has reached the final chapters in his book of life and will pass away in our pastures, surrounded by his herd-mates and our family who have come to love him. Cherokee, I hope you have been happy with us these past few years and I wish we had met you sooner!
