I’m really a registered Quarter Horse
First let me say I know I look like a Thoroughbred but I’m really a registered Quarter Horse. They call me Red or Redsey, partly because of my color and also because my papered name has the word “Resque” in it which sounds a bit like “rescue.” My last home used me in lots of events with loud noises and music. There were parades and other things their kids took me too. It was quite exciting for me. But a day came when they couldn’t keep me and sent me to a scary place called auction. My old owner seemed sad and I waited for us to get back in the trailer and go home. But that didn’t happen. When it was all over I heard I was very lucky that a rescue had purchased me and kept me from the kill buyer.
I was so happy I did some bucking and galloping in the pasture that day as I felt really good.
The rescue people made sure I had enough to eat to get my weight back to normal. They took care of my teeth and hooves which had been a little neglected. I was nervous at first when they had a vet check my back. That nice lady found a lot of my sore spots and made them better. I was so happy I did some bucking and galloping in the pasture that day as I felt really good. My caretakers also found out I have some trouble with my right hip and hind leg. They know my riding days are done and don’t mind. They give me special supplements to help. I like being retired as I can spend happy days with my best friends Buddy and Kalil. And I really like the treats with our breakfast and dinner!
