||Seven years old|
||Mountain Pleasure Horse|
I was three years old I wanted a palomino horse. I did get a horse
30 years later, but still not the palomino. Fifteen years after that,
I went to Kentucky to look at a breed, the Mountain Pleasure Horse,
that I heard was very gentle. The Mountain Horse had been raised in
the mountains of Kentucky for 160 years but was never a registered
breed until 1989 when the proud Kentuckians wanted to preserve this
breed. I saw this beautiful golden yearling filly with a flowing
white mane running through a field and knew this was the horse I had
waited 45 years for. She is 15 hands high.
Katie is a wonderful horse and my good friend. She has a very gentle
way about her. She loves people and runs to the fence to greet
everyone. If I am in the horse field, she is right beside me. About
a month ago, I put her in the back yard to graze for a while - it is
not fenced in but she never goes anywhere, just eats the better
grass. My daughter says, "Hey Mom, your horse is looking for you."
Katie was looking in the french doors from the deck. She climbed two
steps up on the deck and was looking in the window. What a howl she is.
