Meet Doodlebug

Back in 2008, when the court of a nearby county handed down a conviction of animal cruelty, a group of horses were released into our care. They were all malnourished, but we knew we could rehabilitate them and get them ready for adoption… all except for one. 

And he was the most beautiful. This stunning palomino colt had a flaxen mane, star and blaze, and a sassy tail that swung full and long. But Doodlebug also has scoliosis of the spine.

We’re so glad we got him as a colt before anyone tried to climb on his back. No horse with this congenital malformation should ever have a rider.

So, he lives with us. This friendly beauty wanders in one of our large pastures with a group of other horses that he has come to know as his herd. He watches as our trainers work with these horses, preparing each one for adoption, not understanding that it will never be his turn.

If you’re not bothered by Doodlebug’s spinal deformity, if you only see his beauty and grace, then choose him for virtual adoption now!
