Stormboy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Stormboy
Age: Twenty years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Quarter Horse, Arabian mix
Home: Queensland, Australia
   This is my horse stormboy aged 20, competed mainly at showjumping and always had a very big heart. For his size he could clear amazing fences sometimes higher than himself. Although semi-retired, Stormboy is still in very good condition and will continue competing in other disciplines for the next few years.

    We do not normally teach our horses tricks, however he knows all the leg aids and is very good at dressage. He also holds some fastest time records in sporting. Having always been a very spirited and easily spooked horse. He has a very naughty side to him also. This naughty side gives him 'presence' and catches the judge's eye as he would seem to be saying 'look at me'. Stormboy can also get off the float faster than any living animal. This is very frightening as we have to drop the tailgate while he is trying to stomp his way out, it is like a bullet being fired from a gun. Stormboy has won many jumping championships as well as showing and hacking sashes. He has numerous trophies in sporting and has at times won hundreds of dollars at agricultural shows. But most important of all, he is my big-hearted horse.
