Dont’e was rescued with his mom Shakira and 4 other horses from the 8.5/East Everglades in SW Miami-Dade on June 28, 2017. (Scroll down to see rescue video – Dont’e was last in the trailer!) He and the others were unconfined/at large, posing a danger to themselves and the public. Charges were filed by police against the owner.
Since his rescue, Dont’e has become quite friendly with horses and humans alike, and is growing into a very handsome colt. He was weaned from mom Shakira and gelded, and has bonded with fellow youngsters Flirt and Euphoria. Our staff has been working on ground training with him and it’s going very well. He is leading nicely, trusting people and stands fine for the farrier. We’re very pleased with this colt’s progress.
