JNS Kicxaabit (Peanut)

This week's Horse of the Week is a beautiful gelding named JNS Kicxaabit. Peanut, as he is known around the barn, is a 15 hh, registered American Paint Horse owned by Sheilagh Rose and Mike Townsend. He was also one of my very first equine subjects and I have been privileged to be able to photograph this handsome 6 year old several times since. You can see more photos of Peanut on my horses page.

Peanut loves playing with his pasture buddies and his favourite treat is apples. This paint horse loves attention and being ridden - he is used as a school horse for beginner and intermediate riders (including my daughter...a beginner rider). He has been started over fences, has competed for 2 years in the North River Rider shows and was in the Diabetic Ride last year with one of his students. Peanut is also used for trail riding and apparently thinks turkeys are quite interesting.

Sheilagh and Mike have owned him for 2 years, but Peanut was originally from the Orillia, Ontario area.

Congratulations to Peanut for being our February 27th, 2006 Horse of the Week!
