Butter came to us as a pair with Nutter from Northern California. Of what little we know about his history he was used as to drive a cart before becoming a pet.
Butter is a Left Brained Extrovert and is playful, smart, naughty, charismatic, willful, and a fast learner. He is usually interested in movement and needs a lot of stimulation in order to feel like his work has meaning.
All of the Equine Healing Collaborative’s Therapy Herd has a psychological profile provided by Parelli’s Horsenality assessment. This gives us indications regarding a horse's personality and whether or not a particular therapeutic intervention would be appropriate for this particular horse or not. The Horsenality is made up of four core concepts; Innate Characteristics (what he was born with), Learned Behavior (the good and undesirable experiences in his past), Environment (the herd, training, demands, sights and sounds), and Spirit (the level of intensity in which he expresses himself: mild, moderate, and extreme).
