Randy

Randy is a Dark Bay Percheron Cross Gelding who was born on May 20, 2001. He served this country faithfully for 12 years in the U.S. Army Caisson Platoon at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington, Virginia where he helped to lead the caskets of fallen military members to their final resting places at Arlington National Cemetery. He performed in the swing and lead positions. The middle pair in the funeral procession consists of Swing Horses. The front pair in the funeral procession consists of Lead Horses.

Randy arrived at the sanctuary on April 24, 2023, following a brief stay at Cornell University Hospital for Animals where he was examined and evaluated. We join countless other Americans in thanking this sweet-tempered former Military Working Horse for his service and are delighted to provide him with a forever retirement home here at the sanctuary.

Randy is proudly sponsored in full by supporters from Spencertown, New York.
