I read this sad story about Buck…dumped off the estate by the heirs of his deceased owner…
Buck, a devoted and well-worn cutting horse, fell through the cracks during an estate battle. The children of the estate – which was a large piece of property used partially as a boarding stable – just wanted the boarding horses and Buck (owned by the deceased) gone.
This was rough on the boarders but the decedent’s horse, Buck, had no one looking after his welfare. The estate’s best idea for the devoted work horse was euthanasia.
When the boarders heard about Buck’s fate, their hearts leaped into action – they got really scrappy and figured out a way to appease the estate and rescue Buck.
They did this even when they had their own struggles to figure out new housing for all of their horses… let alone a horse that wasn’t theirs.
And it wasn’t easy. They jumped through hoops to save this special horse.
RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS …
I thought that their random act of kindness towards Buck was worthy of an additional random act of kindness…
Maybe we can make their weight a bit lighter for the next few months or so…
Here is the story:
CAN WE REWARD THIS RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS? These selfless boarders are not rich… I thought it would be really nice to recognize those who did this just because it was the right thing to do.
