He came to us as a Percheron, but the DNA test revealed Holsteiner/Tennesee Walker/Turkoman! Quite interesting! If that’s your dream mix, Yukon is just what you’re looking for! He stands 16 hh tall and is a sweetheart! Based on his teeth we estimate him right at 20 but he is sound and moves beautifully for his age! He’s gained quite some weight since his arrival at the rescue and we are hoping to have his topline fill in some more, which might be tough given his age. Yukon moves beautifully in the roundpen and he knew what we asked so he’s definitely had extensive training we believe! He was a bit lazy which is not surprising after however much time he’s had off. He stood to be mounted and walked off ok with some reassurance! Yukon stands tied, stands for the farrier and picks up all feet. He loves treats! If you’re looking for a trail riding partner, or maybe even a 4H partner, we think he might just be right for you! Please contact us if you’d like to give “Yuki” his forever home. His adoption fee is $750 and an adoption contract is required.
