Lemony, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lemony
Age: Thirteen years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Gypsy Cob
Home: Columbus, Ohio, USA
   This is my pet! Her name is Lemony and she is a Gypsy Cob. She is a breed that is very common in Europe, she is actually from England! There are only a few hundred of her type in America. What makes her really unique is she is what is called a draft (think Clydesdale, like the Budweiser horses) but a mini version, with the hair on her legs and everything! She's beloved by my whole family, I've had her about three years now. What makes her even more special is she is only a pony, standing at 13.3 hands high (a hand is four inches, and you measure from the ground to the point where the neck meets the back) and she can jump fences higher than three feet! The fence in the picture is three feet high and three feet wide! But if you asked her she would rather just eat all day everyday. Be careful around her with food because she'll herd you into a corner to get it!
