Ralphe, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ralphe
Age: Fourteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Arabian, Welsh Pony
Home: Johns Island, South Carolina, USA
   Ralphe [officially Ralph E. Lauren] is a special horse because he has been in our family for a very long time. He has been passed down from my older sister to me, and I have now had him for almost three years. We have owned him for almost seven years. When we bought him, he was a Western hacking horse and didn't really do that much but hack around. He was owned by older people who had to sell him because they could no longer take care of him. When we bought him he looked terrible. His feet weren't all that great and he was dirty! His mane was very long and really dirty and gross.

    His very first English show was with my sister, and after about six baths he looked so clean! He is now an awesome horse who has competed in so many shows with both my sister and I, and has done really well. I first started riding him before I got my other two horses, and I was about eight or nine and I was cantering over fences with him! He has a lot of spunk to him and everyone I have met that "hates" Arabian horses, loves him. He is not your normal insane Arab. He is gentle with young children and loves almost everyone. He has great conformation, too, which is really good. I am in Pony Club, and he is a spectacular Pony Club horse. Ralphe is the best horse anybody could ask for!
