December 1st - December 31st
Zen is an 10 year old thoroughbred gelding. He had a harrowing experience at a kill pen in Washington, and SCR's Katie Merwick got to him just in the nick of time. She feels so fortunate to have this beautiful boy in their herd. Zen often likes to sit and meditate. He really sits like this for about an hour here and there – nothing to do with not able to get up, just likes to sit and watch. Zen's holiday wish is for a size 84 waterproof turnout blanket ($110), and licorice and peppermints (a 350 count tub of Sweet Stripes is $14). He would also like to have Peace on Earth, although we tried to tell him Santa sadly doesn't have that in his bag of toys.
