Buddy, a Belgian Draft, was born in 2000. He spent his time as a logging horse before Daniel Denman acquired him for driving carriages then donated him to Winslow in 2018. Buddy was the tallest horse Winslow has ever had, measuring at 18 hands. Known as our “gentle giant”, everyone was in awe of his size and wowed by his calm and sweet personality. Most of our adults and taller children learned how ride on Buddy and considered him their “first horse”. He was always reliable when it came to keeping our riders safe, our volunteers comfortable and our instructors confident in the job he was needed to do. Buddy was the alpha member of his herd, which consisted of Yars, Skunk and Merlin, and spent his last days eating apples out of the hands of his visitors. Sadly, he passed away comfortably on Saturday, August 27th, 2022.
