Willy Wonka was a jumping horse who worked very hard for his people, winning awards all over the world. As he got older, his body began to break down until finally he collapsed in the middle of a show. Thankfully he had kind owners who instead of destroying him, sent him to The Gentle Barn to recover and retire. He will need ongoing care for the rest of his life, like acupuncture, ultrasound, and massage therapy to keep him sound. After years of carrying people, it is Willy Wonka’s turn to be carried, and for us it is an honor to serve this majestic, white steed!

Help in the care and support of Worthy and the animals of The Gentle Barn.

Donation Amount
I will add $2 to help cover processing fees.
