Noah - My new Percheron!

Hello everyone! We adopted Noah on September 18th. He is estimated to be close to or at 30 years old. 16.2H. Originally pulled from an Amish auction, he has been doing trail rides in the Poconos for the last year. When he could no longer keep up with 4 one hour trail rides, 7 days a week, the barn decided to get rid of him or send him to auction. He's way too sweet and healthy for the auction, so he will spend the rest of his days with me doing pleasure riding and getting lots of attention!!

Thanks! He doesn't look anything close to his age until you look at his teeth. They're like little chicklets! His teeth are really good (none missing or loose), just not much left to them! Its amazing how well he still moves.

Oh, a little side note that I forgot to mention, Noah is my engagement present!!! Took a lot of convincing to explain that a horse is way more exciting and meaningful than a silly ring!!
