Harry

Height: 11.0 hh
Year of Birth: 2009

Harry - along with best friend Ipod - 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.

Harry is available for grooming support through the DEFHR Family Forever Program.
