Kaboom arrived to DEFHR in January 2015 from Baltimore City. When he first arrived, he was all energy and no calm. Since being at DEFHR, he has done a complete 180 and we were pleasantly surprised to realize that, the more we worked with him, the more we knew we needed to give him a try as a DEFHR Equine Ambassador. Kaboom is a quiet boy who loves attention from the people around him. He recently helped a little girl, Eden's, dream come true through the Make-A-Wish Foundation where he gave her her dream ride on a unicorn! He was such a gentleman throughout the entire evening. We are looking forward to having Kaboom participate in more DEFHR events, classes, and appearances!

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