Buddy is a gorgeous horse. We rescued him about 10 years ago because his previous owners had to move and so we gave Buddy a loving home. We knew nothing about his history. Buddy is dark brown, almost black, with a gorgeous mane and beautiful strong body. He is a quarter horse. To my knowledge he has never been shoed but he does well with the farrier and we keep him regularly trimmed. I would guess around 18 years old. I think that Buddy may have been partially broke but we never took it any further. His personality has always suggested to us that he would be a great ride for someone who knew how to ride him. Buddy loves attention and is very social and loving. We are not asking for any financial compensation for Buddy...just the knowledge that he will be with a loving new home and owner. The new owner needs to be responsible for transporting Buddy to his new home.
