BOBBY THE LITTLE WHITE PARD HORSE
You know Stormy and Frank and NuBuck and Doc
But do you recall…..the smallest white PARD horse of all?
Bobby, the little white PARD horse,
Had a very bad habit of banging his stall door.
And if you ever heard him,
You would know how naughty he is!
All of the other horses
Wouldn’t believe Bobby was a great therapy horse
They never let Bobby explain to them
That’s why he started banging his stall door
Then one Christmas Eve, Brendon and Wendy came to say,
Bobby with you coat so white,
Stop all the door banging in our barn tonight!
Bobby began to think about all the commotion he caused
And the special request from Brendon & Wendy
And he did his best to comply to the ‘request’
Then all the horses loved him
And they shouted out with glee
Bobby with your coat so white
You’ll go down in PARD history
In April of 2018, our therapy horse “Bobby” received the best birthday present ever...a $5000 Platinum-level “Grand Prix” sponsorship from the Gainey Foundation! Established in memory of Cathy and Laura Gainey, the Gainey Foundation is committed to supporting charitable organizations that offer environmental and arts education programs for youth*. PARD thought it was only fitting to have Mr Bob Gainey sponsor a horse named Bobby! And now thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Gainey Foundation, Bobby (the horse, of course) has his board, hay, feed, nutritional supplements, vet visits, farrier visits, and so much more covered for one year. Bobby was 16 years old when he joined the program in 2015. He’s the smallest of the five horses we currently have, making him an ideal fit for our young riders. He has won the hearts of many of our volunteers with his kind disposition and willingness to please. He has many good years to offer PARD as a therapy horse.
