Marley (Foster)

Marley  comes to us from an Indiana family that had simply out grown him.  His original name was Elvis but due to his wild hairdo - he was renamed Marley.  His last name is that of Kim Foster who had made the phone call that made Courage Rock Marley's forever home.  


 Marley is a chestnut colored 9.3h (39") Shetland Pony gelding. We believed Marley had never been ridden or pulled a cart however his willingness to please his humans and trust in you has made him willing to do both.  His attitude and intelligence by breed, make him an excellent candidate for a therapy horse.   Marley has made many public appearances including visits to assisted living homes and other community events.  Although he is small in size, he is huge in heart and loves people.
