GSH0117 Barbie
Fee: Priceless
Breed: Belgian
Sex: Mare
Height: 18-19HH

Barbie (known as Bertha at ISU) is one of the “ISU 7” - a group of horses donated to Iowa State University for their vet and/or breeding program.  When they were no longer useful, typically the college will take them to auction.  GSH was given the opportunity to take in the ISU 7 and attempt to find them homes. Barbie is a very large, but not chubby, beautiful Belgian mare.  Good ground manners, and a beautiful mover!  She is reportedly not broke, however we will evaluate her when she comes into the GSH facility in early November.
