Jack the Appaloosa Horse, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jack Sparrow
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Appaloosa horse
Home: Lakeville, Minnesota, USA
   Jack Sparrow is a leopard Appaloosa I got four years ago. I ride him English and jump with him as well. He is 15.2 hands high and is a real sweetie. He is kind of a drama king though, I had to do some desensitizing with him when I first got hims. He also bucked me off once and I got an injured foot but oh well, they say you're not a true horsewoman until you bite the dust! And he has not done so for years.

    He loves to go on trails and attracts a lot of attention from by passers because of his color! He is great around small children and I can also put a cat or puppy on his back and he is really good about it! He has a low centered head because the previous owners made the poor thing go through the peanut-trolley walk and low head in Western pleasure. I have to use a wide English saddle because of my specialty so it doesn't pinch him. I am working with holding his head up when he rides, but other than that he really makes me feel like I have my old horse, who died of old age the summer before I got Jack.
