Meet Red Bucket Equine Rescue #394 Sylvia’s Hope

He was enormously power- ful…an athlete who had already had more than his fair share of show miles, trailer rides, bent lines, combinations, and lineups.

Today he and his two “brothers”, also adopted from Red Bucket, are cherished, adored, and very much wanted! Oh, and yes…they get turn-down service at bedtime!
