Shane is an adorable, Palamino Haflinger with a gentle soul. Though in his mid-twenties, you would never guess his age when watching him kick up his heels in the paddock! He is sound and in great overall condition. Shane has driving experience (we believe he has a background as an Amish driving horse), however, he will require a refresher.

In the summer of 2018, Shane arrived at the MSSPA along with a mare as part of a state seizure case. Initially, he was very anxious and distrustful of people. However, after some hard work and training here at the MSSPA, Shane has transformed into a friendly and curious little guy with tons of potential (he has even given pony rides to kids and their friends who have celebrated their birthdays at the Society). Shane is now at Horses With Hope, where the kind and talented horsewomen are continuing his training.
