Gunnar (gelding)

Norwegian Fjord

Gunnar arrived in 2011, when he was 13 years old. He was born and bred in Canada on a Fjord Ranch, where he was trained in English, Western, and Harness riding. He arrived hugely over weight and during the first week at Courage Reins went into kidney failure. Such metabolic trauma also brought on a bad case of founder.  With much care and attention, we were able to save his life. Since that time, we continue to treat him for Cushing Disease. The combined efforts and care have Gunnar healthy and happy today. He really enjoys doing the stimulus and challenges offered by our Parelli exercises. In such a caring, stimulating atmosphere, he has thrived as a member of our team.
