Marcus,born in approx.1997, was taken in by Good Acres in 2011 along with another large Warmblood horse. The owner could not afford to feed the two large horses properly. We purchased both horses from the woman to help them and her. Marcus has extensive abuse history and still has many large scars to proof it.
He is still the alpha horse in our herd. He is very playful and can often be seen playing with his best friend Hank. Marcus is a very large horse with costly special nutritional needs.
