Kind: Miniature Horse

   Hi. My name is Belle. I am a registered Miniature Horse. I was born prematurely and I had to be bottle fed as a foal. She then pasted away when I was a yearling. I was left motherless. I have met my father but he doesn't really care much about me as he has sired alot of foals. He can't have time for all of us. After my mother passed I was watched over by another mare. In fact she actually saved my life. One day two loose Pit Bulls (I know they make good dogs with the right owners) got into my yard. They attacked me, as I was the smallest out of all of the horses. They starting biting my back legs. Then the mare that watched over me started biting and kicking them. The dogs decided that it would be wise to back off, and that's what they did.

    So I had a tough life in the beginning but it got better. So much better my owners decided to let me be spoiled and not make me do anything. It's not their fault, as they were busy breeding and showing the other mini's they had.

    Well two years ago I met Caitlin and she fell in love with me. I can't imagine why but she did. Any way, she decided I needed to be worked with and she started taking me for walks. I didn't like it at first but then I found out it was fun. Well, two weeks ago she decided she wanted to move me to her house and so she did. I have made friends with her two other horses, Romeo and Dusty. She has started training me to lounge on a line and walk better on out walks. She hopes to saddle break me so her three year old brother can ride me someday. I hope that never happens.
