Where Veteran Horses Retire After They’ve Served
The United States Army has horses that are up for adoption. The retiring horses were once part of the Old Guard Caisson Platoon, where they led military funerals, pageants, memorials and parades. When the horses retire, they need a place to go, so the Caisson Adoption Project helps pair them with a perfect home. Here’s how the horse Quincy came to live with George Whitaker, a fellow retired veteran. What did you think?

What a lovely story and what a shame all Horses aren’t treated with such care and the love they deserve
Humans are supposed to be natures custodians that includes all animals

Warms my heart to know these horses will get the love and care they so richly deserve. A salute to these veterans! A perfect match.

That’s a good question, Rita. Think he should! Though he fortunately has a wonderful home and will be loved and well taken care of.

Shut up you all. If you want to make the site better, do not say "i hate it" and start TO GAVE FEEDBACK BEFORE THEY CHANGE. SAY WHAT IS NOT GOOD and do not say only "I HATE ITuto&q;. P.S.: I LIKE IT, KEEP THE GOOD WORK, CAUSE MAKE CHANGES LIKE THIS IS NOT EASY.

I’ve now seen a reason for treasured retired horses to keep
a quality of life until they die.
They are Blessed..!
