    My first love was my great-grandfather's old "Heinz-57 Draft" (It was big and draft shaped, that's all we ever knew) mare, leftover from the days when the farm was run entirely on real horse-power. She was solid black with one spot of white on her nose -- grandpa said there used to be a team of six of them, all black, and she was the only one with a spot of white on her! She passed away when I was quite young, and I only vaguely remember using her as my personal jungle gym for hours on end; she'd just patiently stand or lay in one spot. My father tells me stories about her and me.

    The first love I still remember completely was named Shilo. My dad bought a truck from a man up the road, and when he went to pick it up, there was a large pony/small horse (I think he was ~14hh, going by old pictures) tied to the bumper and a note saying that the pony and the truck were a set, either he take the pony home or he doesn't get the title for the truck.
    Never had any clue how old he was, though he was probably ~10-20ish years. He wasn't saddle broke, but I could sit on his back and be led around. And all those tales you hear of mischievous ponies? This guy was the poster child. (Probably why I have a soft spot for troublemakers )
    Unfortunately, in all of his troublemaking, he learned how to jump. Fences were his favorite thing to jump. So he had to be sold.
    A few years later, my grade school went on a field trip to Medieval Times (it's a theme-restaurant/amusement thing/museum ish. Like a Renaissance Faire, but open year round and housed in a building. XD) and who did I see but my little Shilo running about as the jousting announcer's horse!

    My first horse is my current horse. My parents got her for my birthday last year, I had been riding for 5 years (now 6). She was a lesson horse at the barn that I had been riding. She is a 15 year old grey Arabian mare named Rosie. I couldn't ask for a better first horse, she's amazing. She's hardly ever spooked, never bucked, bolted, or reared. She can get a little excitable, and can be a bit of a pain, but when we get straightened out she tries her hardest to please. She's made me a more confident rider. We have such a connection and I'll never find another horse like her. Some of my favourite memories with her were our first show (we won reserve high point in the Arabian Junior division!), and the first time she ever followed me on her own. She's my heart horse.
