Twister, the Pet of the Day
Name: Twister
Age: Fifteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Belgian Horse
Home: Stanley, New Brunswick, Canada
   This 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!
