About Us
Celedon, the Pet of the Day
Name: Celedon
Age: Eight years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Quarter Horse
Home: Australia
   This is Celedon, also known as Arguounat. We call her Celadon, but because of her skills she got nicknamed Arguounat in shows after the famous show horse!

    I saved her from dying. When her owners abandoned her in an old meadow, they left her to starve. I took her in, and looked after her, I didn't know the people who left her there, but I found her.

    Me and my friends were out riding down the gravel road. We decided to take a break in the meadow up near there, and when we got there we saw the young mare. She was about five or six years old, we figured. We saw she had been starved, so me and my friends let her come to us and we fed her apples and oats we brought for our horses. We gave her water to quench her thirst. Then I took her to my parents, and they allowed me to keep her, so I did. I called the vet to make sure she wasn't sick, or hurt. Once the vet said she was okay, I fed her, and looked after her. She was very happy to be cared for again. Once she was a lot better I trained her a bit each day, only because she had hurt her tendon, and I didn't want to aggravate that! And we even started showing together.

    Celedon still lives today. She is now about eight years old, and she will never be sold, and never be given away, Due to what happened to her last time. She only trusts me and my friends, the ones who looked after her. She does well in shows and is just a beautiful horse. This is the true story of how we found her. She looks so much healthier now.
