  Donatello came to us in 2011 along with several other starving horses.  He gained weight, but he hadn’t been handled much and had to learn to be part of our world.  He learned great ground manners thanks to his foster homes, but he was never too sure about being ridden.  He did compete in the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge in 2012, but he developed a bucking habit.  He was adopted by his Challenge Trainer and then returned when she had to move.  He moved to a new foster home earlier in 2014, and they fell in love with him. Sadly, he was returned when his adopter died.  He was adopted quickly by a long-time Bluebonnet foster home who has opened a therapy program.  He’ll be used in ground work exercises (no riding), which will be a great fit for him.  We’re sure he’ll enjoy the attention!
