Zen is an 9 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 is a master at calming even the most frightened person or horse. 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 8q waterproof turnout blanket ($199.95), joint supplements (7.2 lb bag is $109.83), and licorice and peppermints (a 350 count tub of Sweet Stripes is $32.35).
