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. He is well behaved on the ground, leads well and stands for farrier. He can be nervous but is improving with skilled handling and exposure to new experiences to improve confidence.
RESCUE STORY: 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.
