Jewels, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jewels
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Thoroughbred Horse
Home: Eden, New York, USA
   Jewels 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 the judges.

    I will always love Jewels and she will be my partner for a very very very long time.
