At ThinLine, we only develop products that have benefits for horses and people. Our Busy Buddy (pacifier) was born from our feeling of empathy. Every day, as horsemen ourselves, we see equines who are nervous, stressed, or just bored and exhibit restless behavior. We decided to develop a drug-free, humane way to make their lives better. After developing the Busy Buddy we then looked for a way we could double down on our commitment to creating good for everyone, to that end, we found Person Industries.
When we needed assistance with the production, we turned to our friends at Person Industries who employ adults with intellectual developmental disabilities. At ThinLine, we are excited to be part of a program that helps people with disabilities feel included and accepted in our community. Without them, we would not be able to keep sending this tool out into the world to ease equine stress, in situations like vet & farrier visits, clipping, braiding, being cross-tied, and much more.
