The other day I heard Brita in the barn, and I came running in to greet her. And there was the strangest object in the arena!
First I ran back and forth to get a good look at it from every angle. It was very peculiar, but it didn't move. Brita seemed unconcerned, and stood in the corner watching me. I was a bit unnerved. Things shouldn't just appear in the arena. Especially large, bright blue things.
Finally, I got up enough nerve to get close to it.
I smelled it. It smelled sort of... well... blue.
Then I felt it. It's rough in places, and if you run your chin back and forth over it, it feels funny.
Then I tasted it. And it didn't taste at all.
I tried to bite it. It's not chewable.
I pushed it, and it didn't run.
Then I thought about stomping it, and my next thought was... what would Brita think of that? She wasn't saying. She was being no help at all.
It seems to have a handle, but I can't get my teeth in it...
Hi. My name is William Pendleton Grey. Registered Name "Pendleton". I am an 11 year old American Saddlebred gelding. I live in Western NY with my owner and a couple of other Saddlebreds. I am ridden Huntseat and Saddleseat. I enjoy hacking through the fields, some dressage work, and occassionally a horse show.
I come from a very famous family. My half brothers and sisters are always winning awards in fine harness, and park classes in the really big and important shows. My mother's name is Attache's Galatea (full sister to CH Unattached, Finally Attached, and Moet) and my sire is Deep Blue. Some of my famous siblings are CH Revolver (Day's Grecian Grey), Whitney Houston, Foxy Camilla and Paranormal.
A couple of years ago I tried to learn to be a five gaited horse, but it was a classic case of "white boy got no rhythm". I really like to go Huntseat, and galloping is my absolute favorite. My owner keeps me at home and says I am a "personal riding horse". But, she took me to the local horse show, and I got a blue ribbon on my first try. Maybe we'll go back and do that again. I really enjoyed it!
