Ducatti (Doctor Wendell-Wolkentanz)

Doctor Wendell News Ducatti (Doctor Wendell-Wolkentanz) View All Doctor Wendell News >>> Congratulations to breeder Jenny Trainor of Montana on the success of her Doctor Wendell colt at the Salt Lake ISR/Oldenburg inspection! An unfortunately timed growth spurt left Ducatti (Doctor Wendell x Whippoorwill/Wolkentanz) a little but high at the inspection which didn’t allow him to show his best gates.   The handsome colt received an overall score of 7.9, just missing premium status.  Jenny’s biggest complement for the colt is his kind and intelligent temperament.  She’s say “he walked into the ring like he was meant to be a show horse.” He has a bright future ahead of him as someone’s show horse!
