Rocky was adopted from Helping Hands Equine Rescue & Rehabilitation in December of 2006, at the age of 21 years old. He was an ex-eventer, had been a teenager's Pony Club horse, and now was retired to the rescue. We took him in, and found him a 12 year old girl to lease him. Together they had many wonderful experiences, and Rocky was allowed to do what he loved - jump - right up until we lost him. Unfortunately, Rocky had severe grey horse melanomas, and was humanely euthanized due to complications from the melanomas on March 15, 2009. He is thought of often and much missed.
