Furry Falcons is a series on Falcon News Feed. Teachers and students can be interviewed to have their pet(s) featured on the website, and the pet does not have to be furry! If you are interested and want your pet featured, please fill out this google form.

On this episode of Furry Falcons, we interviewed Jackie Toombs, a junior here at Green Hope, about her stunning pet horse, Daniel.

She told us that Daniel is a Thoroughbred and is 23 years old. He is pretty middle-aged for a horse, as she informed us that they usually live up to around 30 years.

Jackie does not technically own the horse because she leases him. We asked her what it means to lease a horse, and she told us that it is basically like leasing a house: you take care of the horse until your time is up. She has been leasing him for four years.

Daniel originally belonged to Jackie’s trainer. The trainer offered the horse to Jackie, and she decided to lease him. Jackie visits her horse four times each week.

Daniel’s favorite thing to do is jump. Jackie’s favorite memory with her horse was last summer. She took Daniel to a pond, and he enjoyed swimming in the water. He loves to swim!

If Daniel could talk, he would say “More pears please!!”
