Dartanian
Type of Animal Horse
Dartanian
Age 17
Dartanian came to us from Kankakee Animal Control after he was found as part of a walking skeleton duo, wandering along a downstate road. He and his buddy, a bay horse were skin and bones. They were able to save Dartanian, but the bay buddy was not so lucky. He died 4 days after Animal Control rescued them. Animal Control stabilized Dartanian and helped him regain his strength. We have discovered that Dartanian was used as a lesson horse in a riding school until he was deemed unsuitable for heavy jumping. This very tall horse, 16.3 hands, would love to have a family of his own. He requires special shoes due to an old slab fracture in one leg and a partially demineralized coffin bone in the other. Dartanian also needs a home where he can be kept on a dry lot. He is a sweet boy that is very well trained, but due to his injuries his riding days are in the past. He would make a wonderful companion horse.
