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. Also known as “The Mayor” of 13 Hands, in part due to his stall location when entering the barn, but mostly because he always has a nicker to greet all who pass by him. While still 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 lounges 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.
Please help Dougie and the other horses by adopting, fostering and sponsoring, or making a donation. You can also help 13 Hands by volunteering, spreading the word, liking our Facebook page, and signing up for our newsletter. If you have any questions, please contact us using our Contact Page.
