Adopted: June 27, 2013
After a few months of major rehab, Douggie is finally back to healthy and even better, is in a home of his own! He is now living with a few other J&M Acres graduates, including Standardbred's Moe and Fernando and the family absolutely loves him already - how can you not?!
AGE: 11 y/o
RIDER LEVEL: Intermediate - Advanced
SUITABILITY: Western or English Pleasure, Trails
ADOPTION FEE: $300
Douggie is a Standardbred gelding in whose surrender was facilitated via the BC SPCA. He arrived on March 10th in bad shape. He was extremely underweight and in need of a hoof trim and having his teeth floated. He was born June 15, 2001 in Alberta, so he is 11 years old. He is unraced. His sire is Witsend’s Fiddle, who earned $107,090, and his dam is Niastasia who earned $54,491. He stands 16hh.
Douggie has quite the personality now that he is feeling better. He is goofy and darling, but can be stubborn and is best suited for an intermediate handler. He gets along well with other horses, is easy to halter and handle. Since his arrival, he has been brought up to date on his deworming, hoof care and will be getting his teeth done May 7th at which point he will be available for adoption.
He still has some weight to gain, but it is coming along steadily. Now that he has completed two months of rehab at our farm, we are looking for a lovely family to take him the rest of the way - and love him to bits in the process. We are looking for a companion or light to moderate riding home for him. He would do best as a pleasure or trail mount with an intermediate rider who wants to do some riding 1-3x a week.
