Cherokee, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cherokee
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Thoroughbred
Home: Fairfax, Virginia, USA
   This is my horse Cherokee! He is a ten-year-old Thoroughbred ex-racehorse gelding, who is now a show jumper :) He is very special to me because he's brought me and taught me so much. Cherokee is a very demanding guy, who always gets upset with me if I don't pay enough attention to him, or pay attention to other people or horses, and proceeds to ignore me and be a cranky face. Eventually he gets over it though, but hates that I try to make it up with kissy faces :) He drives me nuts because his favorite pastime is to roll and make life hard for me ! He loves to pick up whole bales of hay and swing them around with his mouth all the way across the barn! Everyone gets a good laugh out of that one but me-no respect here! He also has this ongoing love story with his TB/Hanoverian girlfriend, Mariah. They can not be separated and go nuts neighing and galloping in circles if separated. When Mariah is being ridden, Cherokee galops around the ring like a wild beast. And when we put one of them back in the field when the other in already there, they neigh to each other and then galop to each other like a bad romance movie. Cherokee is my love, my life, and my forever horse!
