Omni, the Pet of the Day
Name: Omni
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Thoroughbred
Home: Kalispell, Montana, USA
   This picture is of my horse Omni and I. My love of horses started when I was just a young child, and it escalated into a full-blown career-of-choice. During the peak of my career I lost everything to Lupus, a form of cancer that affects the immune system and eats away at it until nothing is left. I am lucky to be able to still ride, and I love it so very much that I hope to be doing it until the day of my death. My four previous horses had to be sold to pay off hospital bills. Six years went by without horses and that actually made it worse for me, but no one would listen. My illness is still ever-present, but under control and for my 20th birthday, I received Omni, my beautiful Thoroughbred gelding. He is handsome and patient and brings me joy every day.
