Mary, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mary
Age: 25 years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Quarter Horse
Home: North Augusta, South Carolina, USA
   Mary is a quarter horse (she's an ex-cutting horse). Mary has only been with us for about four years now, but we adore her. She's not doing all that well lately, old age is setting in, but she's very special to us and my children love and adore her. My toddler can even run around in and under her legs and ride her alone! She's a really great trail riding horse!

    Mary's actually pretty lovey - if I ask her for a kiss she will put her lips on my cheek and move them as though to kiss me! She really loves the little kids though, and is very curious about them. She hates to be tethered even to get her hooves trimmed... she gets upset, but will stand quite still without being tethered! She can also scare away any young gelding from their bucket of food... does it everyday in order to finish off her penmates' meals!

    I adore this horse. I was riding her for about a year before I bought her. She was boarded at my sister's house and I had no intentions of buying her, til the girl that owned her said she had a buyer for her. I started crying my eyes out, so my husband said "I don't care what I have to do for the money I'm buying you that horse!" She's awesome with the kids! She's the best pet I've ever owned and I've had many!
