Name: Sunny aka Sunmakers Shadow
Color: Sorrel and White Paint
Sunny is a sorrel and white Paint who came to us in October 2004. He had been used as a "heading" horse until it was discovered he excelled as a "heeling" horse in the discipline of roping.
Born in 1992, he was building his roping career until he was pushed too hard and received an injury that was never allowed to heal correctly. Sunny was donated to us as his owners did not want to put any more time and money into him. As a result of his injury, he has developed ring bone in both hind legs and will require surgery to fuse the bone in his left hind leg. Sunny's incredible personality and spirit are the reason we have taken him on as a project of hard work and love. Sunny is great in our Hippotherapy Program for light riders & is another favorite in our Mental Health Program. We've discovered that he likes the smell of coffee.
