Behr

The big draft cross Behr is a gorgeous tricolor paint, a gregarious member of the square peg band. He was trained to ride in his past, but also suffered blunt trauma, that has slowly claimed his sight. Now blind, Behr relies on his best friends Christian and Zak for guidance and play. He is a big teddy bear of horse and one of the most beautiful boys we have seen.

The big draft cross Behr is a gorgeous tri-color paint.
