A picture is worth a thousand words and we think these do the job explaining how "Buck Tuddy Buck" is feeling lately. While he still has more weight to gain, he is certainly on the mend and is well on his way to returning to the full glory he once was, before ending up in the wrong hands.
We purchased Tuddy at the Lancaster Auction earlier this month. We found him there, several hundred pounds underweight, standing on extremely long and very neglected feet. This once proud and successful racing Thoroughbred had been reduced to a depressed and pathetic looking horse, who appeared to be much older than he actually is.
After almost a month of TLC, hoof care and lots of quality feed, Tuddy is blossoming back into his old self. At just twelve years of age, Buck Tuddy Buck will now have many years left to spend with someone deserving of this sweet and very kind horse. He has a bright future ahead, thanks to so many of you who help us on a daily basis.
Special thanks to Buck Tuddy Buck's former race trainer, Valerie Rhoden.
