Burning Sky Eclipse, a fifteen-year-old Morgan gelding. Eclipse just
came home from the World's Fair in Tunbridge Vermont. He was sweet and gentle
with hundreds of children reaching into his face on Agricultural Education
Day. He performed beautifully and won lots of ribbons. He let a brand new
person ride him for the gymkhana (games on horseback) and they won champion
together! He's perfectly paired with his owner - Emily Millman, who won the
hearts of hundreds of people along with all those ribbons!
Eclipse is a super silly, wonderfully affectionate boy. He's a major flirt;
blowing in your ear, nuzzling your neck and even attempting to tug off your
clothes or untie your shoes! He loves meeting new people and having pictures
taken of him, probably resulting from his experience as a model in a "Got
Milk" television spot as a youngster! He's reluctant to try new things
because they scare him, but after some gentle coaxing he behaves as if he
knew it was fine all along!
