Warrior of the Roses is looking for a home!

Warrior of the Roses
Warrior raced 63 times making $523,531 for his connections. While he is a "war horse", he doesn't wage war with humans. He is kind, good natured and as you can see very beautiful. I don't have pictures to do him justice because I don't get to the track to do pictures these days. I think you can see his quality just the same. Warrior stands at 16.1 hands. Warrior is 12 years old ...

Jed Tennessee – Found a Home July 2019
