Remembering every horse that I have had, I never had the right one exactly fit out for me. I always wanted a cutting or a barrel horse, but never had the money to get one. Until this one day on September 27, 2001 I had to stay after for school and I rode home with a friend, we went out to eat and came home at 5:30 not realizing my Mom had something very special planned for me.

When I showed up at home as I walked in the phone rang, it was my moms friend Lisa telling me to "Come over quick." Well, I did and as we pulled up into the driveway I seen a gorgeous solid black gelding standing in the round pen. I ran down there cause I had no clue what my Mom had planned for me.

When I get there she said "Hop on and try him out," I tested him several times but he didn’t act stupid like I thought. While starring him down to see if anything was wrong with him.

I was then pulled off to the side and asked if I wanted him, cause my Mom just didn’t want to get him and only own him for a month or two. I did end up getting him, with his soft black eyes and solid black coat I knew that he was the horse for me.

Zeus, that was the little geldings name. Although full of spirit he is the horse for me. Now on December 27, 2001, I have owned him for three months, and I plan to keep it that way.
