CoCo - 8 year old gelding, 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.
