Zeus was born on an Amish farm in Iowa where he was trained in both harness and saddle work. At the age of 4, he was purchased from a horse broker and then began his 10 year service as a member of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office Mounted Patrol Unit.
Zeus is known and greatly loved for his friendly, endearing and outgoing personality. He is truly a “gentle giant” and has a passion for carrots!
