Nocona

THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSOR by COOLHORSE, AMARILLO, TX!

Nocona is a 5 yo paint gelding was a seizure from Potter county who came to the rescue a couple of years ago in very poor shape.  Scraggly and underweight - high strung and untrusting, he was a challenge.  Once he regained his weight and starting training on the ground, we noticed he was getting sunburned and had a chronic rash. We took him to the vet and found out about his skin sensitivity issue which makes it painful to be ridden or brushed.  No clear answers for his treatment,  he was placed in our Sanctuary so he can  be in the herd and roam the land in his natural setting.  Nocona is a striking horse and gets photographed more than any other horse.  He is truly iconic symbol of our panhandle history.
