Horse Tales

Roo, Baby

“How do you do?” The name is Roo, R, double O, Roo. Gus and Bella were really long winded so I’ll keep this short. I was a show jumper and also did trail riding and helped with lessons—in California, baby. That’s right, I may sound and look English, but I am a refined, elegant, California girl. I wasn’t sunbaked, fake or prissy, like some Cali girls are, but I was well schooled in English and Western riding. I moved from northern Cali a few months before I met Gus. I had moved to Texas with my family on a job transfer. The trip was fun, but long. I enjoyed stable life near the Sam Houston Racetrack, but I grew tired of a stall, even as cozy as it was. I was sold as my owner lost her job and couldn’t keep me. Gus and Bella and I got along right off the bat. I did have a few choice words for that mare next door though. Dixie was bit sassy and seemed spoiled. Anyway, ranch life is cool. I miss the cozy barn and arena riding, but I hear they’re building an arena now and a barn when they can. Till then, I will continue to wear my blanket and snuggle up to my friends at night. I do love the stars! I’m getting to jump again as the Hensons put together some makeshift country jumps for me. Alex and I enjoy riding across the field together and long walks in the trees. I even enjoy the pond. I can’t wait for summer so I can learn to swim. Perhaps you will enjoy it too?
See you ‘Round
