ABOUT: Handsome Raj is a giant baby and a complete sweetheart.  He wouldn’t say boo to a goose.  He enjoys his food and is happy to live out as long as he is rugged.  He gets along with most of the horses within the sanctuary herd.

HISTORY: Raj came to EHPPS in July 2011 when his ownership was relinquished to us as his owners marriage breakdown led to an inability to provide him with the care he required.  Raj spent a few years out on foster as a rideable but kept having periods of lameness that led to him being returned to the sanctuary.  We had his back checked out and it was discovered his spine is wonky, possibly due to a fracture injury acquired from a young age.  After this discovery he was retired from riding and has since spent his days as a part of the sanctuary herd.
