“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
ThinLine Global LLC partnered with Person Industries for the production of the equine pacifier, The Busy Buddy. When assistance was required for production, ThinLine decided creating jobs for underserved communities would be a great way to give back while also providing relief and relaxation for horses. They searched for vocational programs who train handicapped adults and found Person Industries.
The Busy Buddy was developed to help aid horses who are nervous, stressed, or bored and exhibit restless behavior. The drug-free, humane training aid helps calm horses during vet & farrier visits, grooming, braiding, lunging, and much more. There is also a bridle version perfect for exercising horses and ponies of all ages and disciplines.
The people at Person Industries hand-make each and every Busy Buddy. They make them plus learn new skills and ThinLine gets to support their community, a win-win.
“We are excited to have created a manufacturing program that helps people with disabilities feel included and accepted in our community. At ThinLine, we truly believe we make a life by what we give. And I would like to thank each and every person who has or will purchase this product. By doing so, you give to this community and your horses” says Owner & Founder, Elaine Lockhead Castelao.
