So.....here I am...........and here is MY story!
There’s not much to tellreally...... As you cansee, I’m just a horse.
Apparently......I was orphaned by my real Mum. She was nice butI think she had too many spectators and got pissed off and leftme.So.....my owner at the time kept me alive.She thought I was ugly. But she played with me LOTS!! I learnthow to run and chase her, I even kicked a ball around.But as I got bigger, she got rid of me.I spent a year and a half in one small paddock doing NOTHING!!!When people came in my paddock, I loved it, I could chase them,rear at them and even try to bite. That was fun, but they didn’tget me, so I got smacked with sticks. I was just two.
Then my luck changed – I was sent away to be started. A lady whoknew what she was doing worked with me every day. She said Iwas going to have a lot of potential.But then back in the paddock after two weeks.I killed a fluffy sheep one day.......Now people really don’t like me.Then....one day a man with grey hair and his daughter turned upto see me.I showed him how big I was on two legs....but he just stood thereand continued to work with me So I stood there nicely. He wasquiet, patient and I liked him. He left, then his daughter and himcame back and got me a week later......
And here I am, living on afarm in a place calledGore, south island NZ. Myname is Banjo.
She is learning how to teachme....and I’m teaching her.ALOT.
Goal for her:•lose this tie down!!•just ride me with no BIT!!(But we are still working on that)
