Turtle is a young bay overo paint gelding who was foaled on 11/5/16. His dam Dixie came to MHARF during a September 2016 Stearns County humane case. Many of our followers sent us the idea to name him “Turtle” because of the very distinct turtle shape on his side. Turtle was adopted but his adopter could sadly not keep him. He has returned to MHARF and has now been entered into our 2018 Promise of the Future Training Competition to take place on September 22nd at the Leatherdale Equine Center on the U of M St. Paul campus. (Please note: the Promise of the Future training competition is an in-hand competition for horses under the age of 4 who are too young yet to start under saddle). Turtle will be available for adoption by silent auction to pre-approved bidders/adopters at the event! For more information on how to become pre-approved to bid please see Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse. You can watch Turtle’s training progress with his POF trainer Elizabeth Sigsworth on his Facebook Page!
