Our son is 5 months old. When he was about 1 month old, his sister gave him a little sweet, funny looking paisley horse that rattles. He is very colorful with skinny legs and a smile. It was originally hers when she was a baby. He loves that toy and has played with it every day since.
One day while leaving the Chiropractor, I put my wallet and the little horse on top of my car while I buckled my son in his seat. I went around to my side, got in and drove off. About 5 minutes later I got a call from my chiropractor that someone had found and returned my wallet. That’s when I remembered… and thought…”Oh no! Isaac’s little horsey was with my wallet and he’s probably lost.” My heart sank.
I immediately turned around to head back. On the drive back I looked along the road to see if I could see the horse. Low and behold he was laying in the road right near the chiropractor’s. I parked, got my son out and walked to get the little horsey. I was relieved to have found him except to discover he no longer rattled because he had been run over. I didn’t think it was a big deal so I washed him up good and gave him back to my son.
Isaac knew something wasn’t right. Even though I cleaned him up, it didn’t smell right. He wouldn’t play with the little guy. So… That’s when I started a search for his replacement.
A quick google image search for “Infantino horse” turned up this oddly named little plush animal site called Dirty Butter. They specialize in helping people find lost loveys.
They had 2 of the little horsey!! Not to mention her prices were reasonable. I ordered both just in case I would need another replacement later on. There was a little glitch in the ordering process so I called. The sweetest woman, named Rosemary, answered and helped get things processed. Not only that… when I told her my name, she remembered that I had emailed her asking a question about the horsey! She shipped it right away after I paid!! Now all is well. My son has his little horsey back and he knows this new one works 🙂
Thank you Dirty Butter for coming to my rescue! I’m sharing my story in hopes other’s will find you like I did! ❤️
