About Us
Bart - Pipesanddrums, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bart - Pipesanddrums
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Thoroughbred Gelding
Home: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
   Pipesanddrums (Bart) is a seven-year-old Thoroughbred gelding who resides near Pittsburgh, PA. Bart certainly has a sense of humor. After three years on the track that didn't agree with him, he found it much more entertaining to stick out his tongue at his owner! A big bay sweetheart, he's a sucker for apples, and will do anything to get at them. He and his owner show at local shows, hunt seat, and have fun at it. While snapping pictures for the for sale flyers, Bart decided to stop being cute, and catch the photographer by surprise. And he did. She didn't know the picture would turn up that way until they were developed!

    Bart didn't like racing, and from his reactions when I first got him, he didn't seem as if he was well treated. However, he is a great horse to simply ride and to show hunt seat on the flat. He likes to try and find sugar cubes in my pockets when I bring them for him. He groans when he rolls, making it sound like such "hard work." I truly wish I could keep him, but I am trying to find him a good home, since two horses is too many. I hope that he can be a lesson horse or a children's horse because he loves the attention of little kids. He has also made his technological leap from conventional methods of showing himself off to the Internet. Though he doesn't personally maintain it, he has his own web site where he has several pictures. He's quite a guy, with a sense of humor and a sweet disposition.
