Mirage, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mirage
Age: Six years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Friesian, Spotted saddle horse
Home: McDonough, Georgia, USA
   I love training horses and that is just what this horse needs! I got her from a stable that kept her in a stall all but three hours of the day. She has no ground manners and had not been ridden in three months. She was started under saddle late but she does not Buck kick or rear!

    I have had her for about four months now and she is doing great with her training. She is a little on the bigger side but, that's okay - I like a lazy horse. She is the non-fading kind of black and she is gaited like her mom. She does a rack and she paces and trots so she is five-gaited. I took her to 4-H horse school this year and she loved it! She did not want to leave the stalls! We did perfect on our drill team pattern she acted like she has done it a million times. When she was born the story that we were told, was that her mom was not expecting and she just was found on the ground one day and her old owner thought she was a rag being tossed by the gelding in the pasture, she was rescued from him and now has scar tissue built up on her neck.

    She is my dream horse!!! I love her to pieces!
