Ace, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ace
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Paint Horse
Home: New York, USA
 
   This is Ace. He is a three to five year old paint, we're not really sure how old he is. Ace is sixteen hands and weighs about 1100 pounds. We purchased him at an auction. It was love at first sight; I just had to have him (who couldn't love a face like his).

    Ace's first week on the farm was interesting to say the least. He let us know right away that we would have to earn his trust. Ace certainly was not a gentleman when he came home. He tried to bite, kick, and he even reared-up and struck at me. Ace was also very head-shy and would spook easily. This big silly boy was even afraid of cows. Someone must have been treated him very cruelly to make him so afraid and untrustworthy.

    After a couple of weeks filled with lots of treats and plenty of TLC he settled in nicely. He no longer bites or kicks and is quite the gentleman. Ace now enjoys the company of three other horses and a cow. He has become as good as can be, now that he can trust us. He's not even afraid of the cow any more! And he and our other trail horse, Ike, are now the best of pals. They both enjoy trail riding and treats!
