I just got a new horse, his name is Badger. He is a buckskin gelding, 15hh, 12years old.

Before I had a horse, I would go trail riding on my leased horse called Rusty. He was the best, he never nipped, kicked, bucked etc. I used to ride him almost every day and I would take him on a 4 hour trail ride to Lake MacDonald and then I would canter him through the fields. After that I would wash him down and muck out the stables.

There were also two other horses there but they weren't mine. Their names were Ted and Blaze. Ted was the naughty one, he would steal the carrots out of the tackroom and he drank beer. Blaze was the big friendly giant.

When I rode Rusty in the paddocks, Blaze would follow us around, it was really cute.

Rusty was the best horse i have ever known! I don't know how Badger will be, I only got him last week.

Anyway, thanks for listening to my trail ride stories!

See you soon -- from Clare

Hi Clare!

Did you have to sell Rusty? It must have been so hard for you!Anyway how's Badger? I hope he gives you the same friendship Rusty gave you.

I ride a horse called Blaze. Most of the time he's very spirited. But I love him. -SUMMER
