Horses have always been a part of my life. Currently I own two horses, which I consider to be my best friends. Born with a bridle in my hand, I fit like a glove on our cattle and horse farm. We raised and managed an average of two hundred cattle and provided horse boarding and training.
Ever since a young age, I have been around horses; however, most of my time is spent with my paint horse. My paint horse is a bi-colored paint while another paint horse I am frequently around is a tri-colored paint.
