Willy Wonka was a professional jumping horse, competing around the world and winning millions for his humans. Worn down, he eventually collapsed in the show ring and was brought to The Gentle Barn to recover and retire. After years of acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic, energy healing, Sun Chlorella Algae Super food, and Jill and Joan CBD, Willy was finally made sound, and enabled to retire comfortably with our equine herd. Willy held still for people to brush him, made silly faces for cookies which made us all laugh, worked extensively with those with special needs, took care of our horse Zoe when her twin brother passed away, and he was always a gentleman! Willy passed away suddenly from a heart attack at the age of 29, surrounded by his friends and family, leaving a large horse-sized hole in our hearts.
