A busy mind and busy feet

Hi, I’m Buddy and the rescue lady said I have a busy mind and busy feet. Before I came here I was used and made to go fast, all the time. At first it seemed fun, but then it was always what people wanted. I got hurt a few times but the people still wanted me to go fast. I am a smart boy and want to please. But my last owner didn’t understand me so I was bought by a kill buyer and it was a very scary place I went to. Then one day I was taken to another place; they called it a rescue.

I know now I am safe and cared for, and always will be.

The horses weren’t scared and there was plenty of good food. It was clean and the people were very nice. The rescue lady understood me. She saw when I was cold because I was too thin and put a warm blanket on me. She brought people who took care of my injured back the best they could. I felt young again and used to run the pastures at turn out time.

Redsey and I have been friends for awhile. We came to the rescue at the same time. I know now I am safe and cared for, and always will be. I can walk quietly in and out of gated areas now. No one is making me go fast. I get to go the speed I am comfortable with. Of course I do like to gobble up my treats fast. They are really tasty!
