Domino is a 25 year old, registered Paint Quarter Horse gelding, who since 2008 has lived an easy life in the backyard of a home in Woodinville. His aging owner was selling half the property in order to stay in their own house and couldn’t keep Domino. He hasn’t seen a vet since his gelding in 2009, but the family kept up on his hoof trims, worming and vaccines. He’s a healthy hunk of a boy, who faced neglect if placed into the wrong hands, due to the owners age and ability to safely rehome. This boy has a TON of life left, and possibly a few trails to burn too! We will see over time through our training program. Domino is very friendly and kind, a very nice horse to have around!

Everyone is Domino’s Friend

Domino arrived at SAFE after living alone for a few years. His happy nickers on his arrival made it clear he was glad to be around other horses. He is a sweet 25-year-old gelding whose future will be that of a companion or perhaps a lead line horse walking on trails. He enjoys human contact, and is quick to approach the fence if he sees staff or volunteers coming to visit him.

Domino has two horse neighbors, Owen and Lacey, who live on either side of him in adjacent paddocks. You can often see Lacey and him hanging out next to each other. Some mornings, Owen is seen with white hair all over him, so we are guessing even Owen gets over-the-fence grooming sessions from Domino.

Each day, Domino gets turned out on grass for 3 hours with his bestie, Mac. Mac always greets Domino at the fence as though they haven’t seen each other for quite some time. Once it’s time to come off grass, Domino likes to call to Mac and also greet the ladies in their paddocks as he passes by. He sure loves his friends and will make a wonderful addition to a lucky family.

Domino arrived last Thursday and unloaded from the trailer like a champ. He checked out his surroundings as Terry led him across the property to our quarantine paddock. These paddocks are purposely away from the rest of the herd, but it seemed lonely to be so far away from any other horses. Luckily, our staff had set up his paddock so we could give him a friend. They would still have enough space, so they couldn’t touch noses just yet. We brought over another new herd member, Ajax, who seems to be a social butterfly. He easily gets attached to his neighbors and becomes upset when we move them. Ajax seemed like a perfect fit to help the new guy settle into his new life at SAFE.

His aging owner was selling half the property in order cover expenses and stay in their own house.

This boy has a TON of life left, and possibly a few trails to burn too! We will see over time with our training.

Today, we turned out Domino and Ajax together on grass. The two are now acting like lifelong buds. Following each other around the grassy field and even kicking up their heels!

Domino meets Ajax for the first time.

Best buds!

Let’s run!

Woohoo!
