Bear, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bear
Age: Eighteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Paint stock horse
Home: Mundubbera, Queensland, Australia
   Bear is an eighteen-year-old paint stock horse, and he's a smart boy, having been around so long and experienced so much! I think Bear the Horse is special because he is a horse that has not only been used for trail riding, he was part of a packhorse tours. I always thought that he was special. He has been a big part of our kids' lives, too. He knows me well, and I have learned a lot from him, too. We are friends, and he knows our routine down pat!

    For example, when I'm finished with my ride around each day, he knows exactly where to go to get all his gear off, so he can then relax, or more likely, try to get treats from me. He's always nagging me for a peice of bread, which he likes better than anything else. So do not try to eat a sandwich around him, as he just might reach his head over the railing to try to steal it from you! He is a very loving horse, though, and loves being brushed, and likes to push his head against me to get nose rubs. Bear's just the best.
