Douglas (aka “Dougie”) was rescued by 13 Hands from an auction house in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. A former Amish cart horse, he is a 14 year old black and white Paint, Quarter Horse gelding. He is approximately 14.2 Hands with a solid build, nice conformation and a mesmerizing right blue eye. While green, Dougie is currently learning basic ground work, with an emphasis on a trust-based partnership based upon his amazing experience at an Anna Twinney Clinic. He is being ridden under saddle as well (walk/trot/canter/ground poles). He lunges nicely and would make an amazing horse for someone looking for a project as he is he is ready and MORE than willing to do what you ask and is not phased by much. We put a blue tarp on top of him and he barely blinked. Walked him over it and he acted like it wasn’t there. This is a horse that would truly thrive from having his own person. A volunteer favorite, he is loaded with personality and is waiting for someone to give him a chance.
Note: As of April 2018, Dougie is being fostered and trained professionally. He will make someone an excellent horse! HAPPY ENDING! On 10/1/2018 Dougie was adopted by this doting Foster family. They adore him – and the feeling is mutual.
