is Yankee, he is my best friend, companion and show buddy! Yankee
is now retired, he is 25 years old. I have owned him since he was nine
years old. When I bought him, he was not broke. Over the years we have
developed this special bond and partnership like no other.. When
everything else in the World is going wrong, I can walk out to the
pasture and give him a apple, and life all of a sudden becomes a better
place and a little easier to live in. He can always put a smile on my
face. He is the kindest, sweetest gentle guy you will meet.
Every animal is different in their own way, but Yankee is "one of a
kind." He was orphaned by his mother, and raised on a goat when he was a
foal. He went from home to home because no one understood his spirit,
finally he ended up in my barn! Underweight and misunderstood, it took
a long time to gain his trust, but once I had it, he has never wavered
in being my best friend since then. He is my pet of the day every day!
