Shooter, the Pet of the Day
Name: Shooter
Age: 21 years old
Gender: Male
Kind: American Saddlebred
Home: Berlin, Michigan, USA
   This is Image's Golden Sunshine, known as Shooter around the barn. Shooter was a breeding stallion and show horse when he was younger. He wasn't treated well, I know because he didn't have any trust in people and was nervous all the time when I got him.

    I got him for my twelfth birthday and I am now nineteen. Shooter trusts me and is so calm now. He only gets nervous when I leave him. He also gets very jealous when I touch other animals. Shooter is such a great horse now, he helps me teach therapeutic riding. We both help out at other therapeutic riding stables, too, and he is very good with the clients. So he is special to many people, not just me.

    If it wasn't for him I don't know what I would be doing today. He taught me so much, like responsibility, caring, and how to earn a horse's trust. I love this picture of him, he's so handsome!
