"Dunny came to us from a partner dude ranch where he spent his life teaching kids how to ride. A tried and true partner on the trail, he was beloved by the ranch's guests. He is as kind as can be, and always a fan of being brushed and pet. He did not winter well at the ranch and was retired to our care. They knew that he needed the kind of dedicated rehabilitation that we can provide, and we greatly appreciate their decision to trust us with his care.
Our team has spent a lot of money and time refeeding him, but he still has quite a journey to becoming a rideable weight again. Thus, he would greatly benefit from Platinum Performance products, especially from ones like the Healthy Weight Oil and Platinum Performance Equine. These products would assist us in getting him to and then maintaining a healthy weight, so that he will be able to be evaluated and hopefully listed for adoption. He is such a good spirited horse that spent years helping children learn to ride, and we believe he is very deserving of the best kind of care. We are confident in saying that to know Dunny is to love him, and we know that your products will help us facilitate his return to our high standard of health. We appreciate your consideration of our beloved Dunny!"
