Barn Name: Dude
Registered Name: My Blazing Skip
Breed: Registered Quarter Horse
Age: 20 years old (born in 1997)
Sanctuary resident since 2006. We originally bought Dude in January 2001 as our personal riding horse. Through much trial and error, we concluded that Dude had medical issues that would render him unrideable. He's since been diagnosed with "Hunter's Bump" and permanently retired. Dude's "Hunter's Bump" is chronic and we believe most likely happened due to a fall. As Dude ages, the "Hunter's Bump" has become more prominent with his hips not being level.
Dude is enjoying retirement and being in charge of the herd. He is the boss in the gelding herd and enjoys his power.
