Bear Francisco, known around the barn as "Bear," is a 17.1 hand Hanoverian gelding. His career began at SMILES in 2009 and he quickly became a barn favorite. His kind eye and easy going nature make for a perfect match with the SMILES program. Foaled in 1994, this big bay horse is truly a big teddy bear!
Bear thanks Joan Baron for generously sponsoring him for another year.
