Zippy arrived at the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office Mounted Patrol Unit in 2010. Previously he was a polo pony and then used as a family hack horse.
At some point in his life he suffered rough treatment which has left him nervous and anxious. He had also suffered trauma to his jaw and teeth (most likely from a polo mallet) which our equine dentist helped mitigate.
He is on special feedings and gets great care and attention from volunteers to help him overcome his difficulties.
