||Eleven years old|
||Cedaredge, Colorado, USA|
is my very first horse and he is such a fantastic mount and friend,
if I am sad he likes to lick or nuzzle my hair and cheeks and his birthday
happens to be four days after mine is. I love my horse so much and I am so
so glad to have him as a new member of our family. These pictures of from
the day I decided to have fun and paint the Paint horse!
Chief is a special pet to me because ever since I was a little kid, maybe
three or four years of age, I've been literally begging my mother to allow me to
own a horse, I now, at the age of fifteen, have one and I was lucky enough to
be able to get such a fantastic friend. Chief is special cause I feel that
he understand me, what I say, and how I feel. Once I walked into his pen,
he was lying down, I sat right beside his head and watched him sleep, he
woke and jumped a bit (as I am sure all horses do when they wake and
something is right by their face). Before calming down again and instead
of getting up, he laid his head on my leg. That meant so much to me, the
fact that he trusted me enough not to hurt him.
I feel that the more time I spend with him the more me and him will get to
know each other. Chief's personality is the best! He is smart and curious.
Rather than spooking bad and running away or lashing out, he jumps and
stands there thinking about it for a little bit. He is gentle and kind
when he knows something is wrong with you, but when it comes to playing he
has the spirit of a two-year-old stallion! Chief does know a few tricks like
to come to a whistle and if I move my fingers like a bird beak and say
'smile' hell move his lips about. He does have a bit of a independent
personality but is mainly a friendly and loving boy.
