Jake and Zephy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jake, Zephy
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Thoroughbred Horse
Home: Schwenksville, Pennsylvania, USA
   Jake and Zephy are my eleven-year-old thoroughbred geldings who were rescued from the race track. Other than eating as many carrots, apples and peppermints as they can get, they love being dirty. No matter what! The picture of Zephy was taken just moments after he was washed - he rolled in the mud not a minute later. Jake is very bossy and pushes Zephy around constantly. When I take Zephy out on the trail, Jake goes crazy, running back and forth an neighing for his partner. We can hear him from a mile away; he has an extremely loud voice. Zephy hardly ever whinnies, he just grunts when his dinner is being served. My boys love to travel fast and we canter and gallop in the fields near my house. As you can see, they are extremely cute.
