Christine Sperry, a wonderful volunteer with County of San Diego Department of Animal Services brought Buddy to the ranch on April 21, 2019. Buddy was thirty years old at the time.
Unfortunately, his family was unable to properly care for him. Thanks to the intervention of Animal Services, Buddy had already started gaining weight. So, we were able to build on that and get him back to his proper weight.
Buddy is a very sweet, friendly horse. He appointed himself Twister’s sidekick and is never far from Twister. Buddy has a number of confirmational issues, especially in his hips. Unfortunately, a series of hard-to-resolve colics lead us to the decision not to keep him on daily pain medication and provide him with daily supplements to prevent ulcers.
Fortunately, Buddy is doing well and enjoying life with “da boyz,” our gelding corral.
