Teddy Bear, the Pet of the Day
Name: Teddy Bear
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Miniature Shetland Pony
Home: Grantham, UK
   This is my Miniature Shetland Pony Teddy Bear (official name: Simba of Belmont), peering out at me from under his mane. He is 28 inches high at the withers and is four years old, so that's as tall as he'll ever get. My pony is special because he is really sweet for a stallion. He comes in the house as you can see in the picture (but he lives out in the barn, of course) and can jump 2ft 9 when we are out jumping! We bought Teddy a year ago when he was only three. I am just starting to back him and he is already great! One thing, though - he loves to rub his nose in poop and then wipe it on your clothes as he is very cheeky. He loves to hang around with his other pony friends, and bosses them around as he thinks he is the biggest by being a stallion even though he is the smallest by far. I think my pony deserves to be the Pet of the Day most of all because he is my best friend.
