Cotton is a 1994 TB gelding. He has been off of the track for two years. He is very calm and sweet. He came to Shady Acres as a rescue, and is putting on weight rapidly, so there is nothing medically wrong with him. He has lots of potentials! We have ridden him, and he neck reins, stops and goes with no problems! He needs an advanced to experienced rider.

About Grand Island, NE
In 1857, 35 German settlers left Davenport, Iowa, and headed west to Nebraska to start a new settlement on an island known by French traders as La Grande Isle, which was formed by the Wood River and the Platte River. The settlers reached their destination on July 4, 1857, and by September had built housing using local timber. Over the next nine years, the settlers had to overcome many hardships, including blizzards and conflicts with Native Americans. They set up farms but initially had no market to sell their goods until a market opened at Fort Kearny. When the Pike's Peak Gold Rush began, Grand Island was the last place travelers could obtain supplies before they crossed the plains.
