2003 Standardbred gelding
Bug arrived for training in October 2018 from Maple Hill Farm in Auburn, Maine. Tall, dark, and handsome, he is a 15.2 hand, 15 year old registered Standardbred. Bug's 'foster mom' first saw him three years ago, when she joined a friend to visit some horses that had been listed for free online. At the time, Bug was severely malnourished and neglected, but he got lucky that day when he went home with his rescuers and was immediately placed under the ownership of Maple Hill Farm.
Since then, Bug has been started under saddle and recently received 6 weeks of training at Photo Finish Farm in Maine. He is well-versed in the basics and trailers, bathes, cross-ties, and stands quietly for the farrier. Because he is still quite green and will need continued experience and exposure under saddle, we welcomed Bug into our foster training in hopes of helping him to find his forever home. Stay tuned for updates on this handsome boy!
