Zip, the Pet of the Day
Name: Zip
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Appendix Quarter Horse
Home: New York, USA
   This is Zip. He's a very nice horse and I love him oh so much. He's a beautiful and unique red chestnut. When he was a little colt he use to have a nervous system problem where every little touch was like you were pinching him. As he grew he became stronger and recovered, but not all the way, he still is girthy, like a lot of horses and is sensitive to hard brushes. Zip is a horse that is very energetic and loves to go fast. His show name is Zippos Middle Man, he is related to Zippos Pinebar, a famous quarter horse. Zip is a english riding horse, we tried to put a western saddle on him and it didn't go too well. He let us know his preference for English quite emphatically! Zip loves to eat, I feed him oat snacks when he is good, or just because he looks so cute.

    Zips's been to a lot of states in America, like Kansas, and New Jersey, until he came to New York where he is now with all his new friends. He has been with us for two years, and ever since he came he's brought joy to many people. He lives at a barn and gets to run free all the time, and only comes into the barn when he needs to eat. When he hears the gate open he's always the first one in his stalls. He has so much personality and I couldn't ask for a better horse.
