Proctor is a lovely horse with kind ground manners. Due to being abused, he can no longer be a riding horse but would make a wonderful pet and friend. He is available as a companion and is currently enjoying pasture life.
They say that there are 3 sides to every story…”her” side, “his” side, and what actually happened. We certainly got an ear full of both sides of this story, but from our perspective, it is the horses side that we focus on and that we are committed to resolving and serving. The call was urgent. The woman was panicked….and ill with a debilitating sickness. She was behind in her board and unable to care or provide for her 3 horses. She had already provided the ranch manager with her wedding ring as collateral, but was out of options and time. The threat of “auction” and legal action created a swirl of fear and drama. Our role initially was one of counsel versus rescuer, because we are full and not yet funded for 2014. Because there was so much contention involved, a sick owner, and three horses caught in the the cross fire, we felt compelled to help. Red Bucket was founded on the foundational belief of doing the right thing, and so we did. We will continue to focus on the horses side of the unwanted horse dilemma, and in the meantime, we welcome Proctor, Josie Mae, and Harper.
