Duke Skywalker is a Quarter Horse who is over 40 years old. He lost one eye at an early age, which helped make him a perfect therapy horse for many years at the Atlantic Riding Center for the Handicapped where disabled kids could easily relate. After a diagnosis of cancer in one eye, he was retired. South Jersey Horse Rescue took him in and cared for him throughout his eye surgery. Duke is the Old Man Of The Rescue, greeting new arrivals and bossing the mares. He would like a new midweight waterproof turnout blanket size 78" ($199.95), some Purina Senior Feed ($22 per bag), and some financial help with the medicine (Prasend) he has to take every day for Cushing's Disease (a box of 60 tablets is $150).
Feed can be purchased at Butterhofs Feed and Supply, 609-965-1198. Just mention it's for South Jersey Horse Rescue!
