Quincy, a beautiful 11 year old quarter horse, was highly trained for a very specific role in the US military.
It was his job to pull the coffins of deceased soldiers.
There was no rider, Quincy, along with another horse, were trained to pull the coffin alone. The horses that performed this task were part of the Caisson Platoon.
But after a life of honourable service, he developed lameness in his front feet and had to retire.
He was known to be ‘loving and enthusiastic towards visitors and especially children,’ and there were concerns that Quincy would miss the work he had spent his life doing.
The vetting process was intense, with an expert level of knowledge in horse welfare required by the adopter.
Quincy has since found a new home and can live the rest of his days in leisure.
