is Twister! He's all character. This picture was taken at the
Gagetown Fair. Twister and his buddy behind him won 1st place together
in the light horse category. Belgians are draft horses, and love to
pull. I decided to take a picture of him at the end of the horse pull,
and as usual, said "Smile!" before I took the picture. To my surprise
every time I asked him to smile after that, he did!
Twister hasn't always been the "happy horse" in the barn. He has
survived through a barn fire, and always ran away from his owners in the
past. Now at Darkhorse Ranch, he's treated with respect and it shows.
His current owner, Vance Foreman has placed many times with him at local
horse pulls. When Twister's home, he's either playing in the pasture
with the other horses, or chumming with his buddy and owner Vance. He's
full of character, as you can see!
