Corky is our "Gentle Giant" He was donated by Art Cirkus in March of 2015. We were thrilled to be gifted with a horse of this caliber. Even tempered and willing to please, Corky stands over 17 hands high!

But don't let his size fool you! He is a sweet loving boy and definitely a favorite around the barn. He used to be a foxhunter and run through forests jumping over obstacles in pursuit of the hounds who chased the fox. Foxes are nowadays let go, just so you know!

When he developed arthritis in his right front foot his jumping days were over and he had to be retired from the sport. Corky is only 16 years old so his owner knew that he was too young to be retired out to pasture. Horses, like people, like to feel useful and have a job. Corky settled into life at Hopes, Dreams and Horses like he had been doing it all his life. He brings much joy to many people and we are blessed to have him!
