About Us
Gunnar, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gunnar
Age: Fourteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Irish mix horse
Home: Lund, Sweden
   I'd like to honor my pony Günter a.k.a. Gunnar, 'cause he's the coolest, smartest and bravest horse I know! He is born in 1997 and is some sort of Irish mixture. What I love about him is that he always makes me happy - even when I'm angry at him. He can yawn and "kiss" when you tell him to and if you have a carrot he can bow too. We live in Sweden, the southernmost part, and he lives at and is owned by Torns RF in Lund, but he is sort of mine because I've "hired" him for more than four years now. He loves all sort of food; carrots, apples, muffins, bread etc. and once he swallowed a lollipop with the stick still on it!

    I ride him four times a week and every day during the holidays. He doesn't have any favorite gait, he likes to stand still. Yes, he just stands there and looks at you and you're just "okay, do you want an apple?" He is extremely lazy. But he likes to ride out on the fields - that is much better for him! He is not a big fan of dressage ... would rather just hang out. But I love him! He is the most crazy, lazy and funniest horse I've ever met!
