Organization: Hooved Animal Humane Society, Woodstock, Ill.

Get to Know Adoptable Horse Chappy

Chappy came to Hooved Animal Humane Society in September of 2022. He is doing fantastic in their care and is very friendly and easy to handle.

Chappy would make an excellent horse for a first-time adopter. He walks right up to you in the pasture and is easy to halter. If you call him from the fence, he will often wander his way over to say hi and see if you have a treat. He stands well for the farrier, for grooming, and for fly spray in the summer. Before coming to the organization, Chappy may not have had many treats like apples and carrots as he was unsure of them at first, but once he learned what they were and how tasty snacks are, he loves them and will nicker when he sees treats.

Hear more about Chappy in the latest episode of Barn Banter, where we talk to Cynthia Glensgard of Hooved Animal Humane Society about this adorable gelding.
