Harry and Katie LaDuc
Meet Harry, a 7 month old spotted saddle horse weanling.
Harry was born at Volunteer Equine Advocates about 7 months ago. Harry was lucky enough to be born at VEA and knows nonthing but love and kindness. His poor mama did not have the same luxury. She came into rescue in spring of 2016, along with 7 others. Unfortunately, through a loophole, the original owner got them all back. Harry’s mom was the oldest, skinniest mare out of the entire group and believed to not would have made it if not for some creativity his mom was saved and will now live at her life at VEA. She was saved just in time to have Harry. Harry is easy to halter, lead and picks up his feet. With both his sire and mom being tall horses, they estimate he could be close to 15 hh at maturity.
