I am from Nowhere, MO and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 5 months and 8 days
Nicknames: Alf, Alfredo, Alferino, and Alfie. By the way I have no idea when his real birthday was so I just guessed... (;
Age: 8 years old
Height: He's got a long neck and is a tall horse. If you measured him at his poll, he's at least 7 1/2 feet. At his withers, about 16hh.
Color: Bright red chestnut! I used to think plain 'brown' horses were a dull coat color but man, he puts any chestnut I ever met to shame!
Type of Riding: He hasn't been hauled to any playdays or shows yet. I'm planning on pole bending him b/c he likes to pole bend and he knows the pattern. We are also going on some trail rides this summer and someday a parade.
My Horse's Achievements: He was the first wild colt I ever trained and I'm very proud of him for putting up with me and teaching me so much about instinct and training young 'untouched' horses.
Also I've been giving lessons on him! I'm very proud to say that Alfred was a camp horse at SR horse camp 2010! He made a great team with 11 year old Kerri!
My Horse's Favorite Treat: He loves store boughten apple-flavored horse treats. But he'll eat any veggies or fruits (besides Tomatoes, I read somewhere they were toxic to horses). Grain and sugar are favorites too.
My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Scarf down food. He has choked before (scared me half to death)and the vet says now we have to soak all his food or put large rocks in it. Also Alfred likes to swim and pole bend.
Pet Peeves: He doesn't like things that change. If I'm riding him on a trail and their's a rock or stick that wasn't their the day before he will notice and usually snorts once or twice. Also if I leave something out next to the barn sometimes he gets silly and won't go near it.
My Horse's motto: "It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner."
