"horse and buddy" for "horse and buggy"

“Horse and buddy” is a fairly common phrase on the Web—a surprisingly large number of people who hang out with horses seem to be named Buddy—but I think there are only a few dozen instances of the reshaping. These writers seem to think of the buggy as the horse’s companion in a horse and buggy pair. Examples:

Back in the horse and buddy days, some Standard breds, Hackneys and a few specimens of the American Saddle Breed were a small part of the horse equipment kept for teaching use and for transportation.
