Rest well, Buckshot (aka Brat)

Brat (Buckshot) was brought into the rescue in late February 2012, as an owner surrender. He needed to put on between 200 and 250 pounds to be back on his game. He was a beautiful Quarter Horse/Appaloosa and was 27 years old, but didn’t look it or act like it. He was super friendly and loved attention. When rescued he was being fed dog food, which he refused to eat, and the pasture was a sand pit. This is a picture when he arrived at his foster home. It is with a heavy heart that we report his passing during the night/early morning of October 30. He was ill and being treated for a serious infection and laminitis. Brat died of an apparent heart attack. He is now over the Rainbow Bridge, resting peacefully. We love you and will miss you sweet man.
