Isaac

Breed: Quarter Horse X
Sex: Gelding
Height: 14.3 hh
Year of Birth: 2007
Experience Level Required For Handling: Beginner
Experience Level Required For Riding: Beginner

Isaac came to DEFHR as a neglect case from Prince George's County in March 2007. When he arrived, he was just a colt - unhandled and fearful of humans. Through many hours of patience and training, Isaac transformed into an absolute sweetheart. His laid back personality on the ground and under saddle make him a favorite among many of our volunteers and supporters. He is excellent at the walk, trot, canter, and over fences, but is known for having rusty brakes - so he's best for an advanced beginner or above rider. His rotund build makes him ideal for pony rides and the occasional chuckle. Shows, parades, fairs, and expo's...this boy does it all! We love Isaac and it's clear that he loves his job as a DEFHR equine ambassador!

Isaac is available for grooming and riding support through the DEFHR Family Forever Program.

Ipod

Ipod - along with best friend Harry - arrived at DEFHR in 2008 from another Maryland rescue that had to close its doors. DEFHR was looking for some animals to join its educational Petting Zoo and Harry and Ipod fit the bill. These two boys are social butterflies who love attention and getting into mischief, often seen playing and wrestling with each other in their paddock. Harry and Ipod serve as DEFHR equine ambassadors at on-site events, soaking up attention from both kids and adults who want to give them a pet.
