Jesse, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jesse
Age: Thirteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Miniature Horse
Home: Massachusetts, USA
   This is Jesse, my thirteen-year-old Miniature stallion. Jesse is very sweet and loves attention. He spends most of his summer days lying in the sun and when winter comes he runs through the snow rolling and playing. Jesse loves his best friend Fergie my eighteen-year-old thoroughbred mare. Jesse had not seen another horse in three years before he met Fergie. When Fergie leaves Jesse to go to a horse show or trail ride he paces the fence line waiting for her to come home. Jesse is at the bottom of the pecking order. He was kicked and abused by the other miniature horses he was with before me. He was often beat up for the grain he was given by the goats he once lived with. When I got Jesse he was scared of buckets that his previous owner used to throw at him.

    Although he was taught to drive a cart and be ridden by small children, he would rather be brushed and hugged, choosing to stand completely still when you try to move him. Jesse does what Jesse wants to do and nothing more. Jesse has never bitten anyone and his favorite time of the day is feeding time. He loves peppermints and apples, however, you have to break them up because he tends to choke on them. He enjoys apple juice mixed with his water once in a while as a treat as well. Jesse is an incredible companion and a lot of fun to be around. Just don't cut his mane or forelock because he gets very embarrassed and will attempt to hide his face for days!
