HORSE FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT …
LAUREN BEHL, KEYSTONE STABLES FAN AND HORSE LOVER
Lauren Behl is 14 years old and lives in California. She and her family moved there from the state of Washington just in December of 2010. “That greatly diminished my chances of getting a horse,” Lauren says, “but I’m going to keep praying about it. Animals, dogs and horses, are my main focuses in life. When I lived in Yakima, I would go over to one of my dad’s friend’s house and he would teach me everything to know about horses.”
One time, Lauren told me, she was out in a pasture checking on a mare and her colt. The colt was only two or three months old and a very energetic little fella. His favorite thing to do was stand in front of the gate and refuse to move. Lauren would have to roll under the fence every single time to get out of the pasture!
Another love of Lauren’s life is basketball. She was the MVP for her middle school in Washington, scoring 123 points in a single season! She was kind of aggravated when she couldn’t play on my new school’s team due to a sprained ankle, but, she says, “there are always summer leagues.”
Lauren gets along well with other kids, and right now she’s thinking of becoming a writer! (Maybe it’s because she loves the Keystone Stables books so much!) She’s currently brainstorming ideas for a book for younger kids, something like Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, except it will be centered on the challenges that younger kids go through and how God can help them through tough times.
Way to go, Lauren, fellow horse facts lover, Keystone Stables lover, and future horse book writer!
