||Eighteen years old|
||Paint stock horse|
||Mundubbera, Queensland, Australia|
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.
