Type of Riding: In his younger years he did English and in his older years we switched him to Western because it was more comfortable for him.

My Horse's Achievements: Cleo was a race horse and had a tough life before he came to live with us and for him to become a 4-H horse for children of all ages makes me very proud.

How We Met

Cleo was born a pacing race horse and won hundreds of thousands of dollars. But his owners raced him and raced him until he as sore. Poor Cleo ended up with bowed tendons and was not given the time off that he needed. He was then sold to a man and women who kept racing him. Cleo was tired and fed up with loosing and so he would break out of his pace and start trotting to win the race and make his owners happy. But it just made things worse with the man. See when a horse breaks out of their pace and goes into a trot they are disqualified from the race. The man whom owned half of Cleo bet a lot of money on Cleo to win and he didn't so the man lost it all. He then threatened to kill Cleo so the women that owned the other "half" of Cleo took him and hid him on a farm far away to keep him safe. She had a man care for him until she could find a better solution but soon found that the man started beating him. She was at a hair salon when we over herd Cleo's story and so we mentioned that we owned horses as well. The women asked us if we could save him but we weren't sure if it was a good idea we were afraid of the man finding him and starting stuff with us. But a dollar latter Cleo came home with us and we couldn't of been happier with the decision. Cleo has taught
many adults and children how to ride. In his final days up to age 27 he was the best 4-H horse and at age 28 he just got so week so we waited to see how he would do but he wasn't happy just standing around doing nothing. On Mother's day of 2007 we lost Cleo. He just couldn't hold himself up anymore and he fell over on top of my Mustang BlazingSpirit and that was when we decided it was time. I remember that day so well. I held his head in my lap as he passed and just as he was given the last injection the ran came poring down. So this is for you Cleo we all love you.
Please vote for Cleo it would be a wonderful Christmas present for all of those that love him to see that he still has it..

We didn't get to walk yesterday because the men came to cut the large tree down and it took all evening. They got the tree down and hauled off the top part. They are coming back with some equipment to load the bottom half cause it is tooo big. They are going to make something with the wood so they couldn't cut it down. This was an excellent experience for Fancy because she was afraid at first. About 20 minutes into the sawing she calmed down and didn't even pay them any attention. I was so proud of her. Everything is a learning experience for our horses, which can be good or bad.

On this grand Monday we leave a vote for you in honor of Fancy's last day as QUEEN Of NOVEMBER. Life is short and friends are few, we appreciate HorseChannel and all the friends we have made thus far. LOVE & JOY TO THE NEXT REINING HOTM!!!
