Star's Tuck Everlasting, the Pet of the Day
Name: Star's Tuck Everlasting
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Percheron
Home: Rural Missouri, USA
   This is our new colt, Star's Tuck Everlasting - called Tucker for short, a Percheron baby horse. We can trace his bloodlines back to the first registered Percheron in France, circa 1880's. He is a black Percheron with a star on his forehead. We have two quarter horse mares, and a ten-year-old Percheron gelding who, at first, thought Tucker was a "stranger" in their field. But he is so sweet and gentle, the other horses took to him within two days of his being brought home. Now they won't let him out of their sight!

    Tucker also loves our three barn cats, letting them climb on his back and bite his legs... and he loves to sniff noses with them! We drive buggies, so we will train him to pull a buggy soon, and if he is anything like his relatives, he will look gorgeous as a buggy baby! Everybody loves Tucker!
