While spending time around our City of Dover and our Office Coldwell Banker Peggy Carter Team, you may notice the presence of Mounted Police. They have been seen clopping around downtown since 1998. Chances are if your a young kid interested in horses, you probably already know their names. Three beautiful horses make up the mounted police horse force at present. TJ, Black Jack, & Monty which is which?
TJ has two white socks on his hind legs, and what looks like a white diamond on his forehead (star).
Black Jack is all black except for his face which has a white strip running from his forehead to his nose.
Monty is the easiest to identify as he is the only white horse in the Dover Mounted Police.
All three are Percheron/Thoroughbreds a special large breed favored by Mounted Police. Our Dover horses are big boys with weights from 1500lbs to 1700lbs.
The Dover Mounted Patrol receives no tax funding and is in need of support for volunteers and sponsorship.
Should you also see a goat around town... Well he's not part of Mounted Patrol
Photo ID question - Which horse is the photo above?
