Final Update:

Brujo had a hard winter in 2023 and then one January 2024 afternoon he just dropped dead. RIP Brujo. You were well loved and will be greatly missed.


Quite frankly, Brujo is the most perfect horse I have ever had the pleasure of being around. I will never understand why his previous owners tried to send him to slaughter. Brujo is a nice big boy who is absolutely gorgeous. He is a dead broke horse that anyone can ride once he likes you. He really takes care of his rider and I have put little kids up on him with no worries. Brujo is also nearly a miracle worker with other horses. You can put him in with badly abused horses and within a short time start seeing a difference in the attitude of the abused horse.


Brujo was a champion halter horse with an absolutely amazing show record. He was the prize herd sire at a very well respected Appaloosa breeding farm until it was discovered that he was a carrier for HYPP. In order to protect the image of their barn and keep people from realizing that they had never tested for HYPP, his owners sent him to slaughter.
