CoCo is 14yo (2005) gelding, who came to Dove Creek in 2009 as a companion to Little Bear.  They are best friends and very hard to tell apart!  They are often seen together, roaming with the herd and other barnyard animals. CoCo is a favorite with the young volunteers since he is so short.  He loves being groomed and is great being led around on halter.
