Duncan, our handsome Saddlebred boy, has returned to Mylestone after nearly two years of being in a home. We did not anticipate his coming back, but he was having difficulties with another horse in the herd, and his adopter was unable to keep him.
We still see Duncan as a winner and a highly adoptable horse. He overcame quite a bit in his journey to where he is now. Truly, his story is one of Rags to Riches. Left to starve in the woods by his owner along with a miniature horse, (who was also rescued), Duncan was first helped by a good samaritan who contacted Mylestone, and who then undertook his vet and farrier care. When the miniature horse found her placement and a permanent home in South Jersey, Duncan was transported to Mylestone. Despite his needing to gain 200+ pounds, Duncan still showed himself to be the elegant horse he truly was, with a gait that could only be described as poetry in motion.
In the time Duncan was at Mylestone, he put on the needed weight and looked simply outstanding. His condition upon return was still excellent, and he is acclimating to life on the farm without problems. He has currently found a best buddy with Bayou and the two are getting along quite well.
Duncan is still a beautiful mover and now has additional training under his belt. He has no medical issues and is reportedly good under saddle. We would love to find him a home where he can be ridden, and where he would be loved forever. If interested in adopting Duncan, please contact us. Meanwhile, he is available for sponsorship and would appreciate knowing you care. Won't you please sponsor Duncan?4/10/2012
