||Three and a half years old|
||Tennessee Walker, Quarter Horse|
||Winnsboro, Louisiana, USA|
is my horse, Zanzibar. He's a cremello Tennessee Walker/Quarter Horse (I
like to call him a Quarter Walker!). He's very messy and loves to roll in the
mud. When I first met him, he lived with my uncle. When I saw him, something
clicked and I immediately fell in love with him. So, whenever I could, I'd go
out to see my uncle and visit with him. Slowly, I gained his trust and he
began following me. Then my uncle said he was selling him. My heart sunk when
my mother told me we weren't going to buy him -- he was my best friend!
So, one day I had my father take me out to see him. I showed my father a
trick I had taught Zanzibar. We'd run side-by-side and when I'd jump, he'd
buck his back hooves out. Dad seemed to realize that we were a perfect match
and talked mom into buying him.
Now, me and Zanzibar are working together so he can be the perfect riding
horse... But that'll take a very long time, he's still young. The thing I
love the most about Zanzibar is that I can talk to him about anything and
it's like he really understands what I tell him.
Here's a short video of him!
