Toby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Toby
Age: 21 years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Welsh Pony
Home: New Zealand
   Toby is a very special pony that I lease. I was about five when I wanted a pony of my own so I set out looking for one I looked everywhere in the paper in magazines but they were all to expensive! One of my dad's friends loves horses and she knew someone who had a wee Welsh Pony that they were willing to lease so about one month later we went out to have a look at this little chestnut Welsh Pony and that day we took him home! Two years later, I still have him in my back paddock and we are going to Pony Club and doing a few Horse Shows. He is well worth the seven-year wait and I am very happy to have him to ride. I am now getting too big for him so I have to give him back but he will still be in my heart and I will still go out and visit him all the time! His sister a Welsh Pony too is going to have a foal soon so I can go out and visit her and her foal and stuff. I hope other people have special pets like my Toby and love them even though they too might be waiting a long long time for a horse or another pet. My advice to people out there: Keep looking 'cause if you give up then you will never have happiness in your life.
