Marmaduke is a gorgeous Dappled grey gelding who came to Bleakholt after it was found that he had a serious condition which effected the joints in his legs. As a result of this condition Duke certainly couldn’t be ridden and he needs regular cortisone injections to keep him comfortable. However, Duke doesn’t seem to realise that his joints are any different from anyone else’s and he simply loves running around. He enjoys jumping too but unfortunately we can’t allow him to do this because of his joint issue. Duke has a very young attitude for his age (and size!) which sometimes makes him very clumsy and giddy!
