Rocky is 28 1/2 years young and a former quarter horse race horse. When a horse comes to it owner sometimes its history is written in its face. Rocky has the mark of a farrier rasp across his nose. Such abuse would never be tolerated by his present owner but because it is a scar he carries inside as well as outside we decided it was a part of his story and needed to remain in the image as a reminder that life as a horse can be cruel. But also life can take a wonderful turn and become full of great love and devotion as Rocky received when he came to be owned by Gayla.
