Charlie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Charlie
Age: Twelve years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse cross
Home: Rochester, New York, USA
   I've been waiting for Charlie since I was five years old. That's when I started English riding at Huntington Meadows, my Aunt and Uncle's stable in Rochester, NY. My parents could never afford a pony or horse for me when I was younger, so when my husband agreed that we could buy Charlie I was ecstatic. Charlie is wonderful to work around - except when you have treats, then he won't stand still for you unless you feed his face!! When he wants more treats he stretches his neck out, turns his head, and sticks his tongue out the side of his mouth! Wish I had a picture of that!! Although, Charlie has a tendency to have a brain cramp every now and then when we're jumping, he really wants to be a good boy - he just gets a little scared that the goblins under the oxer are going to eat him (horse people will know what I mean)!! Charlie looks so sweet and innocent in this picture and I just love him!
