is my horse Dudley, we have had him for about a year now. He is
really special because we found him at the auction (me, my mum and
sister) in Holmfirth. He was in such a state! So thin, so unhealthy and
too scared to be touched! We spent absolutely ages trying to get him
tame and have confidence in us, and to make him trust us because the
people before that had him had obviously not taken care of him
properly. We rescued him from there because he could have been sold and
slaughtered! As soon as my mum got there she fell in love with him
straight away. We had always wanted a horse and had been trying to find the right
one, but Dudley is the right one. Ever since we have got him, even though he
was so scared, he has never done anything to hurt us at all!
I, my mum and Jade love him to bits and nothing can ever change that !
Now he is as good as gold, still is scared of some little things, but
never hurts us! He stands at about 13.3 hands high. We once took him to
a show and in the category Bonnie pony he got 1st Prize! (We were
really proud because he was against miniature Shetlands ponies!) And in
the Young Handler (he was only three at the time and not long since he
was gelded) he came in 4th place! The rosettes hang very proudly in the
living room, where everyone can see them!
We couldn't even get on his back until about seven months ago and we can now
and ride him very regally. Poor babe, I can't imagine what he had been
through before we had him and you can tell he is happy with us now! As
you can see, I think he is a very handsome pony indeed!
He is sooo special to my sister, my mum and very to much me!!!
