The rain washed all the ice away so we could go out on the side of the road and gallop! We've been stranded indoors long enough for that to sound like a wonderful idea despite the fact that it was pouring down rain. When we got back inside I was so itchy. The water was streaming down my legs and felt creepy in my coat. My considerate owner decided to let me take care of that my way instead of giving me a hot bath and a warm, fuzzy blanket like a human would think was appropriate.
I feel so much better. And I've dressed myself up with new markings.
My people made some rather unflattering comparisons about some of them.
This is not my first experience with being rained on and having to dry off with sand.
This marking is a rather common occurrence. Spiffy huh?
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!
