Malibu is EQUU8's fashionista...a dainty palomino with tons of personality and sass.

Rescued from a sad situation, Thor is a mighty horse who seeks kindness & trust in us.

Scotty, aka Scotbot, is the class clown horse-dog at EQUU8.

Jack is as steady as they come, with a huge heart and a slow, gentle walk.
