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 required 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 at the MSSPA, Shane had transformed into a friendly and curious little guy with tons of potential. After several months at the Society, the kind and talented horsewomen at Horses With Hope continued his training until he found his right home.
