2006 Percheron gelding
This handsome boy arrived in November 2017 from the Hooved Animal Sanctuary in Vermont. Adam was a buddy of Stanley's while in Vermont, and they make quite a pair with their matching black coats and big white stars. For a draft, Adam is a bit on the smaller side at 16 hh, and he immediately won us all over with his sweet but sensitive demeanor. This boy had spent most of his life tied in a straight stall before landing with the HAS, and at the time of his rescue he was in poor condition and suffered from severe ulcers. Under the love and care of the HAS crew, Adam made a big physical turnaround and had basic training during the summer of 2017.
Adam still has anxiety due to his past experiences, and we will be continuing the slow and steady work begun in Vermont. He has nice ground manners and has had work in the round pen and desensitizing, including various objects on his back, from a kitten to a saddle! We will be focusing on improving some basic skills, such as picking up his feet for the farrier, while gradually building towards work under saddle. Once he has completed his training, Adam will be available for adoption through the Hooved Animal Sanctuary. Welcome to Maine, Adam!
