Our School Horses

Duan
May 2016:  A big bay Clydesdale/ thoroughbred cross, he was gregarious, challenging, talented, pushy, well-trained, friendly, hard-working, stoic, and a big goofball. He showed what a huge heart he had until his final days - and it broke many hearts at Three Gaits to do the right thing and end his suffering. We thank Loryn Anne Smith for sharing him with Three Gaits, Country View Veterinary Service and Martin Roche for their wonderful care, as well as the many, many people with whom Duan shared a close bond. He was such an outgoing, generous soul - he was a constant reminder that the world is filled with friends. Goodbye special friend, you left some very big shoes to fill. Duan
