Breathtaking Beauty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Breathtaking Beauty
Age: Sixteen years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Welsh, Hanoverian Mix
Home: Foxboro, Ontario, Canada
   Beauty is a great pony. She has been awesome in every show and has always earned us a rosette. But most importantly, we have a special bond with each other. When I fist got Beauty, she was nasty. Her old owners let her get away with lots. But I stayed glued to the saddle on her, no matter how powerful the buck, how fast the gallop or how terrifying the rear, I showed Beauty that her tricks were powerless to shake me.

    After two frustrating and interesting months, she started to trust me, to go well and not see riding as a game. Five months after that, I was showing her, winning and placing in many jumping classes. This picture is the third show she went in, we placed second. Now, I am too big for Beauty, and she's not as spirited as before. I've bought a new horse, but Beauty isn't alone. She now has a bay colt by her side, three months old. He's Welsh X Hanoverian X Thoroughbred, and will grow quite big, I hope. We called him Handsome, for he's just as beautiful as his dam.
