About Delano

Delano was removed from negligent owners by law enforcement and placed with Bluebonnet.

History

Nothing is known of Delano’s history before coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Delano has no known health problems.  Delano has what appears to be an old bowed tendon on his left front and a swollen right hind from an old fetlock injury.  The old bow does not seem to bother him, but he does have some arthritis that may benefit from a joint supplement.

He is also short striding in his left hind, but that may be due to poor muscle tone due to starvation.

Evaluation and Training

Delano is a sweet horse who is easy to catch, lead, and load.  He is lame from old injuries he suffered before coming to BEHS.  Because of this, he is available for adoption as a companion/pet only.
