Horse Description: Duke is a sweet little guy who came to us in May 2015 from the Kentucky Humane Society. Duke had been wondering the mountains with his emaciated mother and was severely under-developed. Originally thought to be 3 months old, his teeth revealed him to actually be 18 months old at the time. Very shy and skittish at first, Duke is still working on being easier to catch, but is incredibly sweet and easy to handle once you catch him. Duke will never be a big guy, but he has the size and personality that may make him a perfect partner for young children. We are confident that he will be a wonderful partner for his trainer and any future home. If you are interested in adopting him at the completion of the Trainer's Challenge on June 23rd, 2019, submit your application here. It is never too early to apply!
