Ferris’ owner placed him with BEHS when she could no longer care for him. He was a stallion when he first arrived at BEHS and even once he was gelded, he could not be put in a mixed herd. Luckily he was adopted by a Bluebonnet family and lived with two other adopted geldings. The entire family loved Ferris.

When he arrived at BEHS, he had a condition that had caused him to rub all the hair off his hindquarters and left him with little tail. The family worked with Ferris and helped him overcome his condition and he developed a beautiful tail once again.

He then developed COPD and his adopters and their vet worked with him for over a year. He then developed a lung infection that he could not recover from. Sadly, his family was forced to send him across the Rainbow Bridge. Ferris touched several lives while in the rescue and will be missed by everyone who knew him.
