Spirit, the Pet of the Day
Name: Spirit
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Paint cross Appaloosa
Home: Montreal, Quebec, Canada
   This is my baby, Spirit. On June 4th he turned one year old. He is chestnut with three white socks and is starting to get tiny white spots on his neck. My mother says if he gets white spots she is going to die (she doesn't like horses with spots). But I think she'll live!

    Our relationship started on September 20, three days before my 13th birthday. I was cleaning up as usual, and I noticed that Spirit had something under his belly. I didn't know it, but it was a hernia. I went to check it and he kicked me. I promised myself to never go near that horse again. Two hours later, I was being distracted by a friend while my mom was putting a bow around spirit to give him to me as a birthday present.

    It was funny but since then I have been taking care of Spirit nonstop, but he has mostly been taking care of me. I now love him with all my heart and even though I can't ride him yet, just spending time with him is enough for me. He is my baby and I hope I never have to let go of him. I truly do love him. He is my Spirit!
