DECEMBER'S HORSE OF THE MONTH is...SPARK PLUG
owned and loved by Cassie Vallegas
Congratulations SPARK PLUG and CASSIE! Your 10lb bucket of Platinum Performance will be waiting for you at our office!
Here is what Cassie had to say about Spark Plug...
This is Spark Plug the Wonder Nag!! He is a 25 Year old Appy/pinto gelding. I've had this wonderful boy for 12 years!! He is my first horse! We have a great life together! We do the Blue Shadows Mounted Drill Team and trail blaze in Lakeview Terrace.
He has been there through it all!! The heartbreaks and the new challenges. He has also touched so many peoples lives! The little kids in Shadows LOVE him! I've given many of my friends and family their first ride off him.
I wouldnt trade anything in the world for this horse!! He has an amazing personality, although can have ideas of his own. He has grown a lil grey around the eyes and shows some signs of age, but he still can kick it like the rest of them!
Now that i'm going to have a lil' one of my own, i'm glad to know he'll be around to give him his first ride.

NAME THE BREED
With well over 600 different breeds of horses, we thought it might be fun to give you information on the various horses around the world. Every couple of weeks we will talk about a different horse and give you some basics on each breed.
The Zaniskari pony is a breed of pony found
in northern India. It is a mid-sized pony, that stands approximately 11.1 to 12 hh. They are most often gray in color but can be found in bay, brown, black and chestnut. The Zaniskari
is strong, compact and best known for its endurance and ability to perform in cold climates and high altitudes. There are only a few hundred Zaniskari ponies alive today, and are considered endangered. A conservation program has been started in India to help preserve the breed. Very little of the breed's history is known, but they are thought to be descended at least in part from the Tibetan pony.
