Bubba, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bubba
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Warmblood Horse
Home: Alaska, USA
   My best friend is my warmblood horse, Bubba. Bubba should be the honored, because he is always happy to see me. He runs across his pasture to me even when he sees his halter. He is always willing to do what he is asked. He is just wonderful. I think that he should win because he already won my heart.

    When I bought Bubba, he was a wild horse right off the range. The rancher I bought him from had just had him cut the summer before. And he hadn't worked with him much. He hadn't been ridden, and he had never been in a trailer. I worked with him every day for three months before I was able to get on him and actually ride him. Three more months later, we went on an eight-hour ride with six other people and he was the best horse there. The other people couldn't believe that I had gotten him just six months earlier.

    He is the horse that I had always dreamed of. I really think if someone else had broken him for me, he wouldn't be the same horse. We both learned a lot, and we are still learning. I love him very much, and I do think that he feels the same. Bubba is very smart, he loves to play. He is the jokester, he will steal your hat or glove and play with it. He likes to chase the dogs, too. He may not look like a clown, but he sure is! He is my best friend.
