Update: Mighty has been adopted and is no longer available. Mighty is a 1992 registered Appaloosa gelding who we have taken in from the equine program (now closed) at the St. Cloud Children’s Home. Mighty is a gentle giant (approximately 16hh) who has great ground manners and we are told he can be ridden by any level rider.
