Their Story

Meet Fortunato

Fortunato was a draft cross gelding who was surrendered to Animal Control and then signed into L.E.A.N. in January 2013. He was underweight and had been confined in cramped quarters for an unknown length of time.

Fortunato was distrustful and scared. However, he blossomed in loving foster care and was calm when handled gently.

Fortunato needed a home with a patient and confident rider. He had experience being ridden on the trail in his past and saddled easily.

He stood for the farrier, had a recent dental, and was up to date on all vaccinations. He always smiled after a treat!

2016 Update: Fortunato relocated with the McCarthy family to the wide open spaces of Texas!
