||Eleven years old|
||Eden, New York, USA|
is a gorgeous eleven-year-old thoroughbred mare I bought a few years
ago as my first horse. Jewels was the second horse I went to look at,
she was a pathetic, tall, skinny mare, but I instantly had to have her.
So that night I called the owner and bought her, the next day we went to
give the check to her owner and sign her papers. She had a huge
gash just before her hip, somehow she had been injured. Jewels was
always very high strung and spooky and I believe it's from being abused,
but after years of persistence, being thrown and put in the emergency
room several times, she started to truly trust me and become my partner.
I took her to her first shows a year ago, and she did awesomely well in
her first show. She came home with a Champion title and four ribbons, in
every other show she has brought home ribbons, never failing to impress
I will always love Jewels and she will be my partner for a very very
very long time.
