jesse in our feild summer /07

okay, so i geuss you could say that jesse was more an angel to me than a horse. He was my best friend, my friend Tori had just moved away and i was lonely. So my parents took my to a slaughter aution, to find me a horse. We had a 6 stall barn and outdoor ring, #673 "Just Jesse" was led into the ring going for $1200. Under the matted mane and coat he was a light chestnut with a blaze and four white socks. He reared and twisted at the end of the rope and from that moment on, i wanted him.
Jesse came home with us the next day. When we unloaded him he ran down the ramp and whirled around to face me. I looked in to his eyes and knew he was mine. Jess' never left my side when i went inside he would wait outside my window. There was a ring of horse thief's in our town area. But i wasn't worried. Jess was a strong TB and could fend for not just him but for me as well.
That night he was stolen i felt crushed. My dog heard something and as i ran to my window i only saw a truck going down the drive with MY HORSE!!! My parents told me not to go after him. But what could i do?!? We had 2 other horses on the farm i pulled on my boots and hopped bareback on my mothers QH Missy and started after them.
The theifs stopped down the rode and unloaded jesse and two other small horses. Suddenly Missy reared and i was grabbed by a man and thrown in a stall, i cried and cried for Jesse and some how my prayers were anwserd. Jess knew how to get out of our stalls at home so this was know problem. Soon i was on his back and he bolted out the door sirens were wailing as we stopped. the 4 men were loaded into a police car and the horse owners were contacted.
Sure i got in trouble, it was no riding until jesse's leg was all better(he strained a tendon)but he IS STILL my angel. I still have him he is now 9 and im 12. I love him.
