Te, the Pet of the Day
Name: Te
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Appaloosa Horse
Home: Epping, New Hampshire, USA
   What makes Te so special is that, well, he is just my best friend in the world and I'd like people to know it. When I first got him, I could sit on his back without him even flinching once, and horse owners or lovers know how flinchy a colt is, one that hasn't even been trained yet too. I have been training him to be a jumper and he acts like he belongs in the air, like a cloud, he gently floated over the three foot jump. And when I decided to make them a little bigger, he cleared them just the same. Now he is doing six footers with ease, but without a rider of course, he hasn't been jumped with a rider on his back for fear of injuring him, and that would be awful. I think he is special because he is just so sweet. I must admit that he does have a nipping problem, but even though you may think so, no pet, or nothing is perfect. But perfect or not, Te is my best friend.
