Phil, the Pet of the Day
Name: Phil
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Appendix Horse
Home: Pennsylvania, USA
   I bought Phil in early September, and knew right away that we were made for each other. When I was first told about Phil, I was not interested because he was a little smaller and older than I wanted. Even the fact that he can jump 3'9", does his automatic leads, and was placing at prestigious shows didn't turn me on. But I went to look at him out of curiosity anyways. When I first laid eyes on his gleaming bay coat and calm personality, I knew that he was the horse for me. I rode him, and although it took a little bit for us to get used to each other, I had so much fun, and only ended the ride for his sake.

    I took him on trial right away, and after he passed the vet check with flying colors, he became mine. He has such a calm manner, and all he wants to do is please. He is very friendly, and will leave his food to come say 'hello'. None of my other horses ever did that, and each time Phil does it, a warm feeling passes through my body and a smile becomes implanted on my face. Phil is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I can't wait for us to spend the rest of our lives together.
