Duster, the Pet of the Day
Name: Duster
Age: Thirteen years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Australian Riding Pony
Home: Victoria, Australia
   I got Dusty on the 8th of June 1998. I bought her, I don't know why, I suppose we just clicked. She's a magnificent pony. She recently gashed her leg badly and we had to call the vet, her nerve and vessel had to be reconnected and she had to get stitches. She has just recovered from it and I have ridden her a few times since then. I mainly do jumping on Dusty, but she doesn't like to jump too high. We currently jumped three feet. She has something about her, her mischievous look. That look she gives, hee hee. Shes absolutely gorgeous.

    I love her to bits. I am now getting too big for her, but will never sell her, would break both our hearts. We dont show as I am not the showing type, I am more... casual. I prefer to ride on trails, not on show grounds. Dusty prefers it too 'cause there's more food!! lol. She gets huge in summer and sometimes has to go in the diet paddock. I dont know what id do with out her...
