Carrie contacted us, distraught and devastated over the loss of her beloved 27-year-old horse. It is a love story that we have become all too familiar with…the passing of a treasured lifelong horse, leaving a devoted owner heartbroken and the horse’s companion grieving and inconsolable. Understanding the emotion and urgency, our team worked quickly to match Carrie’s wish list: a kind horse that would enjoy being loved, groomed, and spoiled…she had no expectations of the horse whatsoever. Thurston fitted Carrie’s “wish list” to the letter. Having been seized by Animal Control in 2016, he arrived at Red Bucket severely neglected and malnourished. We named him Thurston due to his endearing teddy bear qualities, kindness, and affectionate demeanor. Thurston has settled into his new home splendidly, has befriended Sigaf, and is living up to his new “job description” of being loved, spoiled, and groomed. Welcome home Thurston, and congratulations to Carrie, Sigaf, and Thurston!
